Natalya’s dreams of being a ballerina are killed in a car accident
along with her father, she must choose: shut down—like her mother—or
open up to love.
Last year,seventeen-year-old Natalya Pushkaya
was attending the School of Performing Arts in New York City. Last year,
she was well on her way to becoming a professional ballerina. Last
year, her father was still alive.
But a car crash changed all
that—and Natalya can’t stop blaming herself. Now, she goes to a regular
high school in New Jersey; lives with her onetime prima ballerina, now
alcoholic mother; and has no hope of a dance career.
At her new
school, however, sexy soccer player Antonio sees a brighter future for
Natalya, or at least a more pleasant present. Keeping him an arabesque
away proves to be a challenge for Natalya and his patient charms
eventually draw her out of her shell.
When upsetting secrets
come to light and Tonio’s own problems draw her in, Natalya shuts down
again, this time turning to alcohol herself.
Can Natalya learn to trust Antonio before she loses him—and destroys herself?
