A modern classic for the older reader.
Illustrated by Victor Ambrus
For Anna, everything takes second place to her burning desire to dance. Even the earthquake that destroyed her Turkish home has not made her think differently, only now she's struck in a prim suburban household with an uncle who "doesn't approve" of dancing.
What can Anna do? Not only is three no one to give her lessons, but there's no money for them either, and, anyway, dancing's forbidden. Will she ever become the ballerina she longs to be?
