Tiny Pretty Things by Sona Charaipotra, Dhonielle Clayton Review

Publicado por Paulina J. en 21:30
Title: Tiny Pretty Things 
Series: Tiny Pretty Things #1
Author: Sona Charaipotra, Dhonielle Clayton 
Date Published:


Black Swan meets Pretty Little Liars in this soapy, drama-packed novel featuring diverse characters who will do anything to be the prima at their elite ballet school.

Gigi, Bette, and June, three top students at an exclusive Manhattan ballet school, have seen their fair share of drama. Free-spirited new girl Gigi just wants to dance—but the very act might kill her. Privileged New Yorker Bette's desire to escape the shadow of her ballet star sister brings out a dangerous edge in her. And perfectionist June needs to land a lead role this year or her controlling mother will put an end to her dancing dreams forever. When every dancer is both friend and foe, the girls will sacrifice, manipulate, and backstab to be the best of the best.

Things I liked:

-E Jun/ June: I really liked seeing how twisted her mind was, the way she was written didn't make her look cartoonish  character she could've easily been.

Things I'm not sure how I feel about:

-Bette: She's a pretty interesting character, she is shown to be the bad girl but it surprised me how many times I found myself relating to her  but reading her chapters stressed me out. I guess I'm going to have to wait till the next book to make my decisión about bette.

.Giselle: Gigi has all the makings of a great main character yet it was her chapters that annoyed me the most. I think my issue with her was her naiveté, she is what 16? And you honestly expect me to believe that she has never encountered a mean person in her life.  The thing is that at times I felt like I was reading an 8 year olds daily life instead of a teenager.

Things I didn't like:

Gigi's Parents:  If your child has a heart condition that could kill if her if she does an extraneous activity, why would you let her do Ballet??? I know this is for the stories plot but in real life come on!!
