A beautiful story that centers around the ballet scene in New York City in the 80’s and up to 2016. Carlisle’s mother was a Balanchine ballerina and her father taught at a dance school.
This is a story of acceptance and forgiveness that beautifully intertwines issues of the AIDS epidemic and how we reckon with our parents choices when we grow up and become adults ourselves. The writing was absolutely gorgeous and the story was perfectly paced. It was the first novel of 2023 and it was already five stars for me!
