I discovered this great book, or so it seems to be great when I was working on my 20 tween bibliography titles. It seems like it would be really interesting and a good title to read. I know that it deals with bullying, which is something that I feel...more

This was a very interesting story and not at all what I expected. I thought it was going to be about ballet dancing but it was quite the opposite. Isadora Duncan disliked ballet and claimed it restricted the body and was very unnatural. She was a fre...more

Not done yet, but so far, so good. This was a great book and I highly recommend it. It's about a boy who dared to stand up for what he believed in during the reign of Hitler when it was absolutely forbidden.

Awesome book! I really liked how she is telling her life through her poetry. Although she has many unfortunate events in her life the book is very good.
