Life In Motion: An Unlikely Ballerina

Just grabbed Life in Motion: An Unlikely Ballerina off the endcap at the local library with no expectations.  I have been wading through a very poorly written account of a Western Muslim doctor’s stint in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.  Just feel like getting out of my life.  What a welcome surprise this was.  Misty […]

I guess she represents true independent spirit or something.  I didn’t love. I can see why Spinelli is a popular write and perhaps much so with teachers. The themes are good […]
