I love how she wrote about the obstacles she had faced, and having a good career at last.

As a former dancer, I loved the insight into some of the funnier aspects of dance, and I greatly appreciate the honesty about her struggles with her weight and the pressures put on her. It was a little more religious than I would have liked, but at the same time, she shows how necessary it is for dancers to have something outside of dance to make their lives more fulfilling.
