—Megan Fairchild, principal dancer with New York City Ballet and author of The Ballerina Mindset

“I so wish that Lauren in the Limelight had been in my local library when I was a tween-ager: my parents couldn’t afford ballet lessons for me, so I consoled myself by reading every ballet book I could find, and I would have loved loved loved to imagine myself Lauren then and I know that tweens—ballet fans or not—are going to love it now.”

—Nancy Pearl, author of the Book Lust series and George & Lizzie: A Novel
