TurningTurning by Joy L. Smith
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The premise of this book is about a dancer who suffers a traumatic injury, so she can no longer dance. However, this story is so much more than that. Said simply, Genie is navigating some really heavy stuff. This includes grief, unhealthy relationships and determining what she must do now that her dreams have been shattered. While this is explained as a book about Genie the dancer, it's really about Genie the human. For me, I wish there would have been some more about who Genie was before and just more about the characters in general to really get that strong emotional connection to the story. Thanks to the publisher for an early copy of this recent release.
