Editorial Reviews

Review

"Terez Mertes Rose writes with an urgency that keeps us reading long past our bedtimes."
-- Dance Advantage

"A refreshing and gritty story about friendships, dreams, and life. The reason why this story works on so many levels is the author's ability to create characters that ring true. Terez Mertes Rose delves deep into her characters' back story to show how they really are: human and flawed. While her characters are off balance, Rose has balanced her novel perfectly. It's well-written and constructed brilliantly.Off Balance  will leave readers wanting more."
-- Self-Publishing Review, 5 Stars

"Any readers who have ever grappled to find the courage to strengthen or to soften, to embrace a dream or to let go of one, will find themselves rooting for the two willful yet wounded protagonists in Terez Mertes Rose's edgy debut, Off Balance. I loved this exquisitely written, fast-paced novel from the first page to the last."
-- Sandra Kring, bestselling author of The Book ofBright Ideas

"A realistic and gripping account of the grittier side of ballet."
-- Grier Cooper, former professional dancer and author of Wish and Hope.

"The demands of the stage--or memories of it--bring two lifelong dancers into an unlikely friendship that helps them face their respective breaking points. Powerfully rendered, sensuously artistic and hauntingly beautiful, OFF BALANCE is on track to become one of my favorite reads of the year."
-- Tara Staley, author of Need to Breathe and Conditions are Favorable

"Any reader, dancer or otherwise, will find the nuances of life and the dynamics of human frailties intricately woven into this spectacular novel, a symbiotic relationship, much like partners in a beautiful dance."
-- C.J. Anaya, author of The Healing Series
