Review: Dancing in the Dark by Robyn Bavati

Date Read - February 11, 2013
Source - NetGalley

Ditty Cohen lives a very strict life according to her even more stricter Orthodox Jewish parents. But when she discovers ballet, a burning desire has been released. As she learns more and even secretly practices, she comes to realize that even if her parents forbid her to dance, she can't imagine her life without it. So Ditty takes it upon herself to take ballet lessons, in secret. With the pure freedom dancing offers, it comes at a devastating price: living a double life. Ditty's heart is divided with the world she has only known, and the life she longs to live. A huge hit in Australia, "Dancing in the Dark" will grip you from the first page. Readers will cheer for Ditty and her pursuit of her dream. 

While I was reading this book, a particular song came to mind. "Hall of Fame" is a great anthem for those young hopeful who fight to fulfill their dreams.
