    "Hasn't anyone else read this? Please do!"

    Why only one review? That's why I passed it up each time, thinking maybe it's not good. I pictured the overused cut-throat world of pretty ballerinas trying to dance the coveted role of Giselle, so ignored it until now.

    Although the title character, Ori never speaks, you have a crystal clear picture of her from alternating narrators Violet (V) and Amber. From disparate worlds, V is a rich miserable, over-privileged, narcissistic sociopath hoping to dance her way into Julliard. Amber pulls the story from being a cliche by bringing us into her world as an indigent, unloved daughter who killed her abusive stepfather (or did she?) and now resides with the other 41 girls in a juvenile correction facility. There are several tragic events told superbly.

    The story is haunting and gritty, yet mystical near the end. Perfect ending. The writing is superb. Suma introduces an unknown ballet as the central theme tying in the tragic heroine; color red between both narrators; playing to revenge and retribution. Who says YA stories are subpar? They obviously haven't dissected this one.

    The narrators are the perfect fit. V is clipped and unapologetic and Amber is a blend of kind with a hard edge just as I would picture.

    Excellent story!

    "Dark and weird"

    Very enjoyable, creepy YAF. Orange is the new black flavour, with a bit of an otherworldly kick.

    "Second greatest book from Nova!!!"

    Love love love Nova Ren Suma!!! She's my favorite author! 17 and Gone is the best book! The walls around us is just as good as 17 and gone, if not better!!!
