That Ms. Slaughter understands the difficult life of dance is very clear as she also presents a very real and believable protagonist in Cass.
The mystery of Cass' mother; the trials of waning friendship and betrayal; the pursuit of Cass' dance career; and a chance for new love all contribute to a compelling, hard to put down novel.
While I Danced was, for me, a feast of the senses. Lynn writes with knowledge of dance so deep that characters come alive. I could smell the studios, flowers, and traffic. I could almost taste the granola bars and sandwiches, see the dance, and hear the music. Most especially, I could feel the muscles slide against each other as the dance movements flowed across the studio and the stage. The emotions seemed real, and the characters grew throughout the book.
