" I bought this do my 10 year old ballet dancer. I'm glad I read it first. I'm going to hold off giving it to her for a few years. I understand Misty had a tough childhood but there were some areas in the book that I feel are inappropriate for a ten year old to read. There are also some body image parts that are unhealthy. " said.

" I love this book! Misty Copeland tells her dramatic story from being moved around to becoming a memeber of ABT, also called the American Ballet Theatre. Her story is really inspirational! I would recommend this book to anyone who loves dance! This book is also by her so the story is from her point of view which is awesome! " said.

" I rate this at 3 stars because it's targeted at middle school aged kids, so I found it overly simple. That said, it's an easy start into biographies for kids and about an amazing woman who overcame so much to make history, without really intending to make history. I'm looking forward to reading the not-young-reader version soon. " said.

" Though this was a really short read, it was really captivating, interesting, and SO inspiring. Misty really makes you believe that you can achieve your dreams, regardless of all the "but"s, and I think that is something that has been missing from this generation. This was truly magical, and I loved it so much. " said.

"Misty Copeland is an inspiration. This autobiography starts with Copeland detailing her very difficult childhood. Right about the time you wonder what her future will hold, she shares her experiences of ballet class at the Boys and Girls Club. She then goes on to share her amazing life of ballet while always balancing the incredible amount of dedication and hard work it took to achieve the roles which have brought her fame. She goes into great detail about the role that race played in her life in a very white ballet culture. This is a great story of what can happen when you discover your talent, are provided with support (even in unexpected places), and are willing to work hard to achieve your dreams. This young readers edition keeps the language accessible for a wide audience. " said.

" I read the Young Readers edition. I really respect how straight forward Copeland was in her memories. " said.

" Copeland’s story is incredible; as the first black principal ballerina in the US, her personal and professional achievements are unparalleled. The YA version of her story was engaging, especially her connection with Prince, but I’d have loved more details about her training, diet, and routine. Her new books will feature those in detail, but I’d have enjoyed in in this version. " said.

" I thought this book was a Awesome book because it has a great lesson For example, the lesson is "Never give up on your dreams even if your skin color gets in your way if you fall down just get back on stage." And she inspired me to be like her someday and work harder in dance class and concerts. So I gave this book 5 STARS! " said.
