But when an injury made her step back for awhile, she lost her momentum and, with every passing event, lost her drive and belief in herself more and more This memoir is the follow up to another book, one I haven't read. But that definitely doesn't make a difference when picking this one up. This is the story of the author's own journey as she gives her all for one dream during her teenage years, only to have it suddenly fall away, leaving her with no idea what to do next. I do know a few teens, who would benefit from this memoir as they have gone are going through similar experiences themselves, and don't always see a light at the end of the tunnel, yet.
The graphic novel form is well done, especially since it invites to a more relaxed and quick read. The illustrations allow the emotions to stay front and center, giving the entire portrayal an almost poetic atmosphere for the eye. The words float along, sometimes bold and sometimes dimmed, to let feelings hit with more emphasis. By keeping this in the illustrated form, it also circumvents the usual heaviness a written description might have, while still keeping the atmosphere very clear.
In other words, this is well done. The text stays short and quick. This isn't a memoir with much dialogue, but rather, the author describes each moment and le the reader through this timeframe of her life with many direct statements.
I realize this is a memoir, but it still wasn't as engaging as I like and felt as if the reader were viewing a slide show of the life. Luckily, the illustrations make up for this and add the needed emotions. The message is very clear and powerfully done, and will strike a note with the right reader.
I received an ARC and found this well done.

College helped me put myself back together, but I never knew how to reconcile those two parts of myself, because it always felt like I had failed. I have never seen this articulated so well as in Tiny Dancer. The epilogue really got me right in the emotions. It's such a unique kind of grief, leaving behind something that was once so important to you, and I'm grateful that Siena wrote a sequel to her amazing first memoir. It's definitely something i would reread, because this is Wanted tiny dancer special book. Aug 16, Jaclyn Hillis rated it really liked it Shelves: read-comix.
When your whole life, your whole identity, is that one thing, how do you ever really move on from it? I loved how this book highlighted the impact injuries can have on an athlete, not just physically, and also how to embrace self-doubt and rejection. The epilogue was so beautiful and honestly my favorite part of the whole book.
I loved the simple color palette and artistic style. Aug 06, Morgan rated it it was amazing Shelves: graphic-novels. I have so much love for this book.
As a dancer who tore her hamstring in high school, I know the woes of trying to recover, of worrying whether you would ever dance at the level you did prior to injury, and feeling so self-conscious about what your fellow dancers thought of you. I admit I got teary-eyed at scenes, and related to trying to find what you want to do in life when you've spent the last 15 years dancing. The artwork was also so beautiful, all of the b I have so much love for this book.
The artwork was also so beautiful, all of the ballet sequences, the the shadows, the epilogue. I also laughed out loud at the thermostat hiding behind the mirror There was a kinship to this scene.
And to this entire book if I'm honest. May 10, Lisa Yee Swope rated it it was amazing Shelves: bookmarks-proof-arckids-club-yrs.Taron Egerton - Tiny Dancer (From Rocketman)
This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it. Everyone can dance. Not everyone will be great, and very very few will become professional dancers, but everyone can dance. And if dance is in you, you're a dancer. Siena has always danced ballet. She loves the royal feeling of it. The only problem is recurring self-doubt. What do you do when everything you've always wanted to do is just out of reach? Do you keep trying or do you change directions to find something Everyone can dance.
Do you keep trying or do you change directions to find something else that is also you? The art to this graphic novel is stunningly gorgeous. It felt like a story interspersed with full dance posters. The movement and the lightness of Balanchine's choreography doesn't easily translate to theand Mark Siegel has absolutely nailed it.

Wanted tiny dancer was a lovely graphic novel memoir about a young ballet dancer and her journey through dance. It navigates the sacrifices young athletes have to make along with the pressures of meeting high expectations in a field where only a select few make it to the very top.Wanted tiny dancer
