"The people, the excitement, and the beauty of dancers were the story of my life...." When eighteen-year-old dancer Anna Linado began her professional ballet career with the prestigious Los Angeles Ballet Theatre, she thought all of her dreams had come true. Company life offered glamorous colleagues, exhilarating performances, and the chance to become a prima ballerina. Then she finds an older dancer's diary hidden in her theater case, and the contents unravel her preconceptions about life in the company. Just as Anna reaches the cusp of stardom and the beginning of a promising love affair, the realities of the ballet world will change her life forever. ________________________
