About the Book:
When the music stops, the dance begins.

Seventeen-year-old Penny is a lead dancer at the Grande Teatro, a finishing school where she and eleven other young women are training to become the finest ballerinas in Italy. Tucked deep into the woods, the school is overseen by the mysterious and handsome young Master who keeps the girls ensconced in the estate – and in the only life Penny has never known.

But when flashes of memories, memories of a life very different from the one she thinks she’s been leading, start to appear, Penny begins to question the Grand Teatro and the motivations of the Master. With a kind and attractive kitchen boy, Cricket, at her side, Penny vows to escape the confines of her school and the strict rules that dictate every step she takes. But at every turn, the Master finds a way to stop her, and Penny must find a way to escape the school and uncover the secrets of her past before it’s too late.

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: The cover is just so pretty but the book itself was just to confusing.

Recommend this book? No way to confusing

Notes and Opinions: I was so excited for this book, the cover is just so breathtaking! But, unfortunately it was very confusing and well just didn't work out for me at all.  I love thrillers but with this one I had so many issues keeping track of what was going on.  I felt very confused with the narrative and I didn't really connect with any of the characters which had me so disappointed.  



Go Into This One Knowing:  Way confusing
