OUTSIDE THE LIMELIGHT a Kirkus Indie Books of the Month Selection for Jan 2017
Classical Girl Press announces the selection of Book 2 of the Ballet Theatre Chronicles for January 2017 Kirkus Indie award
In OUTSIDE THE LIMELIGHT, two competing professional dancer sisters must reexamine loyalties when a devastating medical condition leaves one fighting for her career. Opportunity, betrayal and passion color this behind-the-scenes glimpse of the professional ballet world, in what Kirkus Reviews calls "a lovely and engaging tale of sibling rivalry in the high-stakes dance world." (Starred review)
"It's a novel not just about dance," says author Terez Mertes Rose, a dance writer, reviewer and former ballet dancer. "It also explores the hidden realities of infirmity that imperil a dancer's career. I'm thrilled it was chosen to be a Kirkus Indie Books of the Month Selection." Books in the Ballet Theatre Chronicles present stories that take the reader beyond the glitter of the professional stage to expose the sweat and struggle, amid the mandate to sustain the illusion at all cost.
Kirkus Reviews highlights only a few of its Kirkus Indie reviews every month. Those earning a starred review are considered for publication in Kirkus Reviews' print edition, and from the hundreds of books reviewed each month, one Kirkus Indie review per category is chosen as a "books of the month" selection. OUTSIDE THE LIMELIGHT was published in the 11/15/16 print issue and will be featured in the 1/15/17 print edition as well.
Released on October 30, 2016, OUTSIDE THE LIMELIGHT is available through Ingram Book Company and Amazon. Review copies are available through NetGalley or the publisher. Media kits are available through Classical Girl Press.
