GOODREADS BLURB:
EVER FEEL LIKE SOMEONE’S WATCHING YOU?

ME TOO.

BUT LATELY IT’S BEEN HAPPENING IN MY ROOM.

WHEN I’M ALONE.

A friend posted a video of me dancing online, and now I’m no longer Alicia Ruffino. I’m dancergirl. And suddenly it’s like me against the world—everyone’s got opinions.

My admirers want more, the haters hate, my best friend Jacy—even he’s acting weird. And some stalker isn’t content to just watch anymore.

Ali. dancergirl. Whatever you know me as, however you’ve seen me online, I’ve trained my whole life to be the best dancer I can be. But if someone watching has their way, I could lose way more than just my love of dancing. I could lose my life.

 

MY REVIEW:
This short little book blew my feeble mind. I’ll admit, I was in from the beginning (starting with the kick-arse cover and blurb), and was thrilled when the story measured up to my redonkulously high expectations. The guts of this story is a thriller, but it felt like so much more. I really liked Ali, and LOVED the way Author Carol Tanzman used a modern culprit (YouTube) to set the stage for tension. I’m not sure if it’s because I was in the mood for a story with a little more excitement, or if Tanzman just hit all the right notes, but this was a total score for me. More, please!
