I am a sucker for anything dance related. If you show me a pair of ballet pointe shoes, I am in. This Monica Murphy book was everything a YA/NA book should be.
I have to say, I don’t know which character I liked best. Carolina and West are a beautiful symbiotic combination of give and take. Carolina can be prickly and bitchy, while Weston can be calm and non-confrontational. He knows when to push her buttons and enjoys watching her bloom. Now, don’t get me wrong, West can be everything a possessive, demanding, over-the-top Hero should be, he just knows how to use this to his advantage when interacting with Carolina.
IABWY is an easy read. It does minorly deal with some sensitive topics, such as eating disorders. Due to Carolina’s strenuous work schedule, it is alluded to that she may have an eating disorder. Ordering salads with veggies and no other frills or her mother continually saying snide comments on this topic. Despite all of this, I fell in love with Caroline and West and their storyline.
