Summary
For as long as Samantha can remember, she's wanted to be a professional dancer. But she's beset by crippling anxiety about her appearance, which threatens to crush her dreams entirely. On her dance teacher's recommendation, Sam is sent to a summer treatment camp for teen artists and athletes who are struggling with mental and emotional obstacles. If she can make progress, she'll be allowed to attend a crucial ballet intensive. But when asked to open up about her deepest insecurities, secret behaviors, and paralyzing fears to complete strangers, Sam can't cope. A compelling novel about body, mind, and the courage it takes to become who you want to be. --
