If you want more diverse books in your collection, this is a good choice. A little girl falls in love with ballet when she starts ballet and gets to try out for a performance of Coppelia. She has a natural ability to dance and excels. She gets to be one of the two main dancers! She is thrilled and never lets go of her love for ballet. Misty Copeland, the author, is the first black woman to be principal dancer at American Ballet Theatre and this is her story.
