About the Author

Keltie Colleen is a quirky Canadian from Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada. She is a ballet school graduate turned music nerd who spends her free time going to concerts, finding new music and singing loudly in the shower. After several years dancing for the Radio City Rockettes, she has expanded her career to encompass TV show hosting, her own clothing line, and most recently -- a best-selling book. Keltie is living proof that with a little hard work and dedication dreams do come true. Keltie lives in Los Angeles with her dog Hobo. She loves tea, sunshine and gives really good hugs.

The absolute best thing about this story is how honest it is. Keltie doesn't pretend to be a writer who studied English, she doesn't name names or do anything but tell you a story that is all hers. Its brilliant, the way she gives the men nicknames, because it helps to keep the reader from getting too distracted by anything but this story. If you want something that will help you nurse heartache then this is the book for you. I lend mine to friends all the time. Buy this book. Keep it at the head of your bed. Its where I keep mine

Loved this book - it was a great autobiography. Keltie bears her heart and soul in this story of how she lost herself and then found herself again. She braves her way to New York City from small town Canada and becomes codependent on others - only to learn how to truly be independent in the end. It's inspirational and heartfelt and makes you really cheer for her. I can't wait to see how Keltie's "story" develops in the future!

Beautifully honest and insanely charming, Keltie invites us into her world with open arms. The book doesn't pretend to be any more sophisticated than it is, and at times it's as though you're with a close friend, regaling times of hardship as motivation for the brighter future. Following the roller coaster of ups and downs, this book is an autobiography that has you rooting for Keltie every single step of the way and completely unable to put it down.

I would definitely recommend this book, even if it sits among a pile of others on your bedside table, it proves it's right to be there with every reading. It's one of the few books that I come back to time and again, particularly after a difficult day. It gives you hope; that things will get better. Solace; in knowing that you're not the only person alive who has felt bruised on the inside and out. And it gives you strength and determination; Keltie has proven that we are strong, we can pick ourselves up and we will live on to dance another day.

As you can tell, I'm not much of a literary critic. But this book is definitely worth a shot, try it for yourself and I'd be willing to bet you won't regret it.

This book is one that had me hooked at just the title. Keltie opens up the struggles and triumph's of her life for all to read. As one who has always aspired for things that are "unattainable", it is a book of inspiration. It's wonderful to read about someone who is so dedicated and determined to turn her passion and her dream into a career. It's equally nice to read about the hard times, struggles, and bouts of self-doubt that occur within a business that is so strenuous. This book is a great read, and one that I believe most any girl could easily relate to and be inspired by. Even if dancing isn't your passion, if skinny-jean clad rockstars aren't your thing . . . we've all been through heartbreak. Definitely a must-read for any girl looking in need of some inspiration and hope!

I have one complaint about this book: that it's not a hard copy that I can give to people. I'd honestly love to give a copy to almost everyone I know.

Yes, I've been a Keltie fan, but really, it was this book that made me a really big fan. She's got a great, easily relatable voice for writing, you feel what she felt and she makes you believe it CAN come out okay (or even better than okay) in the end.

I really appreciated her honesty about everything and was really kind of upset when the book ended, because I felt like I was ending a conversation with a close friend.

(Plus, it's kind of fun to guess who she's talking about when she uses nicknames for people.)

I hope she writes another book... I'd love to see where her journey goes next.

This is a great book for anyone who wants to learn first hand about life in the fast lane. It would be nice if every young girl would learn to not only follow their dreams but also to beware of the dangers found in dating in "the scene". Keltie lays it all on the line for the reader. She was strong enough to rise up from when she was down. Many girls don't share the same strength of character. Maybe reading this book could save a lot of broken hearts and teach the value of quality in people, places and relationships.

Buy this book.

I made the mistake of reading this book an airplane - as when the flight was finished I didn't want to leave my seat, but finish the book! It is that good! Keltie Colleen is humorous, poignant and raw in this book! Great read!

Keltie poured her heart and soul out to everyone who has read or will read this book. I felt bad for her then at the flick of a switch felt happy for her. The switch went on and off several times. She kept me guessing throughout the story who were "Rocker", "Singer" and "Dreamer". Through and through Keltie is an awesome person and deserves the best. A quote from the book which I really love is, "In life, you have to go for it, at all times." And Keltie did just that!
Great book!
Laurence
