Girl Through Glass is the story of a gifted 11-year old ballet dancer Mira, striving for greatness in the days when the legendary George Balanchine hand-picked tomorrow’s stars. As her girlhood becomes a grueling test of body and spirit, Mira falls under the spell of a strange mentor, a man who could propel her to dazzling success or bring her to ruin. In a parallel narrative, we meet Kate, a modern-day dance professor who is compelled to seek closure from a mysterious past. In prose that bestselling author Ruth Ozeki calls “balletic: elegant, musical, and captivating,” Mira and Kate’s stories converge in a stunning tale of ambition and betrayal, hope and sacrifice. Publishers Weekly calls Girl Through Glass an “engrossing look into the fabled world of hypercompetitive 1970s ballet.”
