There is absolutely nowhere to hide in a biography. In a fictional novel you can adjust the story to peak the readers interest, kill off a character here, insert a tsunami there. But in a true story you can’t do that unless it actually happened (well, I suppose you could, but family members might not take too kindly to being killed off in a ‘true story’).
This means that the story you’re telling has to be interesting, it has to be something that people want to read. Chloe doesn’t struggle to do

En Pointe Book Review
5 Stars

I was gifted this amazing novel by Panthers Press with thanks to AusYaBloggers for an honest review.

What an incredibly emotional journey!!
Chloe loves to dance, her life revolves around dance, she is fit, eats well, and stays positive.
When Chloe turned 17 her life was turned upside down and the possibility of ever dancing again was thin.

An interesting memoir about a promising ballerina and the awful disease Lupus that she suffered from just as she was about to graduate and had the world at her feet.

She is a very positive young lady and was lucky to have such a loving family around as well as some great friends to help her get through this terrible period in her life.
