Outside the Limelight

Posted on Thursday, March 7, 2019 | No Comments

A Kirkus Indie "Top 100 Books of 2017" Selection Rising ballet star Dena Lindgren's dream career is knocked off its axis when a puzzling onstage fall results in a crushing diagnosis: a brain tumor. Looming surgery and its long recovery period prompt the company's artistic director, Anders Gunst, to shift his attention to an overshadowed company dancer: Dena's older sister, Rebecca. Under the heady glow of Anders' attention, Rebecca thrives, even as her recuperating sister languishes on the sidelines of a world that demands beauty and perfection. Rebecca ultimately faces a painful choice: play by the artistic director's rules and profit, or take shocking action to help her sister. Exposing the glamorous onstage world of professional ballet, as well as its shadowed wings and dark underbelly, OUTSIDE THE LIMELIGHT examines loyalty, beauty, artistic passion, and asks what might be worth losing in order to help the ones you love. "A lovely and engaging tale of sibling rivalry in the high-stakes dance world." - Kirkus Reviews (Starred review)
