Pretty Dancer by Cora Graham

Every little girl should have a dream and a tutu.

Do not let the plain cover fool you this book was amazing and was an absolute roller coaster ride. A huge thank you to Cora Graham for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I knew from the first few chapters that me and Lilly were going to get along just fine. Not sociable, not trusting, people getting on her nerves yup sums me up perfectly as well. I would've loved to have hung out with Lilly and Andrea. Andrea played the best friend role to perfection and I loved her Texan quirkiness. Luke and Carter my oh my I would not want to have to choose between those two guys. They were both amazing and I fell in love with both of them from the start. I felt like all the characters in Pretty Dancer were just done to perfection and it was hard to fault them. Even the "satan's barbies" played their role in the story and played it well.

I was really looking forward to an emotional read for the weekend and Pretty Dancer certainly bought the emotions. My heart broke for Lilly time and time again. To live what she lived through and be hit with all the drama that comes at her throughout the book was just incredible. I loved her completely crazy moments and also any girl that uses a high heel as a weapon is definitely made of awesome in my opinion. The letter from Mitch just wow I don't want to go into too much detail cos you know spoilers and all that but just wow. 

You may be asking yourself why the 4 star rating if I clearly loved the book and the characters so much. Well unfortunately I just felt that it was far too slow and wordsy at times. Things that could've been summarised in a paragraph or two would go on for a few pages. There were times where Lilly was just rambling and the rambling would go on for pages. When the book was at its greatest it was emotion filled and amazing but when we had the wordsy pages it dragged and I would start to lose focus. 

This book was fantastic though and was the perfect weekend read. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for anything else that Cora Graham releases. Also at the time of publishing this review the book was only 98 cents so I urge you all to go pick it up while it's so cheap.

4 out of 5 Stars!
