      As a huge fan of dance, I admit that there is nothing I ve wished for than even a smidgeon of rhythm in my step so I could glide across a glossy stage like I m having the time of my life, but alas, all I m good for is carrying in the watermelons In fact, I m such a bad dancer that I m not even allowed to sit in the corner I have to stand in the back to gawk Still, I love being an observer of the sport because dancers are amazing I could watch them bust a move for hours That said, I ve learned t [...]

      As I prepare to wind down from the 24 Hr Readathon, I bring you Book 7 a good number to finish on as it s my favourite number Are you a fan of mystery and suspense Feeling in the mood for a bit of stalkerish fiction Meet Ali , all she has ever wanted to do was become a dancer and what started off as fun entertainment a school friend Charlie filming her dancing and posting on Zubu which is like the equivalent of Youtube ended into a game much dangerous as somebody else is filming Ali secretly as [...]

      The beginning of dancergirl was a bit slow and confusing, especially with her best friend Jacy and the characters not being introduced clearly for us However the story finally took off, with Ali s dancergirl videos and the emerging of a peeping tom stalker.Alicia, Ali, who is our female protagonist is a contemporary dancer The dancergirl videos started because one of her classmates Charlie videotaped her while she danced The videos went viral enters the stalker I wasn t that happy with Ali s per [...]

      There are so many ways for me to read this book as a dancer, as a teacher, as a YA writer As a dancer, I loved Ali s passion for the art form Anyone who dances will understand and empathize with her need to express her creativity, her inner soul through movement, as well as the sheer joy she feels moving her body As a teacher, I feel like I got an insight into the many pressures a young dancer has in her life, things I may have forgotten about And as a YA writer, well, this was a page turner fro [...]

      Review also posted on my blog The Book BarbiesMy aunt said a very true thing once She pointed out how when she watches CSI or any crime show movie she knows who the bad guy is five minutes into the movie show But, the anime cartoon Detective Conan which is better known as Case Closed It was dubbed in Arabic in Saudi Arabia Detective Conan is the Arabic translation is unlike the high end movies TV Shows because Case Closed Detective Conan keeps you guessing until the last 30 seconds of an episode [...]

      Alicia Ruffino s friend posted a video online of her dancing and now acquaintances and strangers know her as dancergirl At first, Ali enjoyed the attention, but the vibe quickly changed from admiring to unwanted Ali is sure someone is taking this dancergirl thing too far and feels like someone is always watching her Thrown into a world of fear and paranoia, Ali, along with her friends, struggles to figure out who the voyeur turned stalker is before it is too late.The characters Ali is a pretty c [...]

      Stalkers happen to be one of the things that scare the bejeezus outta me That, and the end of the world And Ghosts And The Dark And a lot of other things No kidding So when I saw that dancergirl was about a stalker I was like YAY lol, I Love a good scare 3 But dancergirl was just Okay.Don t get me wrong, dancergirl wasn t half bad, but I remember when I read Deadly Little Secret by Laurie Faria Stolar, I would go to bed all freaked out With dancergirl I found it very predictable who the stalker [...]

      I have seen Dancergirl on a few other blogs and was at first reluctant to request a copy But after hearing a lot of positive things about it I went ahead and requested and got accepted.From the moment I started Dancergirl I was hooked and even though it isn t my typical type of book to read I devoured it, I could not put it down Dancergirl follows Ali who is caught in a film by a friend at a concert The film is then posted online and Ali becomes a huge hit and gains the title Dancergirl More vid [...]

      The Good Realistic premise Dance Cultural references Jacy going commando that made me smile and relate Imperfect hero Readable in one sitting The Bad Flashbacks to Center Stage, the ballet movie, esp Cisco as the womanizer Dance terms that I didn t understand Undeveloped side characters which were too one dimensional The mom s total uninvolvement in the daughter s life which considering that the mom was an immigrant was truly hard to believe The Ugly The Stalking The typical, let s follow the wr [...]

      Dancergirl by Carol M Tanzman was an amazing book in my opinion This book is about a teenage girl who loves to dance but soon enough videos of her dancing have gone viral and there is nothing she can do to stop them As things go out of her control she learns many lessons of life I really liked this book from beginning to end because it was fast paced and it was filled with action, love, adventure, and struggles I also liked this book because it had a mysterious vibe to it that kept me interested [...]

      Dancergirl, by Carol M Tanzman, is a realistic fiction mystery about a girl named Ali and the scare she goes through when realizing she can t trust anyone I think the author was trying to teach me that throughout life situations are going to come up and knowing who you can and can t trust will be a challenge I loved this book because the suspense that was portrayed was carried throughout the entire book until the very end when an unexpected event occurs I would recommend this book to anyone who [...]

      It s strange to say I liked this book because of the issue, but it s very realistic to what s happening with the younger generation I could see this happening In fact, I m sure something similar to this has happened It s a bit scary when you think about it, especially with the overwhelming amount of information we put out there on the internet, for anyone to track down To track us down.Wow.Okay, now I m scared and I m deleting my Facebook page.

      FINAL RATING 3.45 STARS CATCHALLSo, I went into dancergirl You have no freaking clue how hard it is for me not to capitalize that It is just wrong on SO many levels not having any idea what to expect I m a dancer, so that s really the thing that drew me to this book so much I never expected to find it so thrilling THE HEROINEALII had a difficult time with Ali sometimes, but for the most part I could relate to he She s every teen, really Not invisible, but definitely nit one of the best known gir [...]

      So, in the entertainment s side, this book is perfect good view about music and enthusiasm But it s lack of clarity about the other characters and some description about Ali s fear therefore, it makes readers confused and have to read it again to understand.

    24. Emily on said:

      From Books and ThreadsI really enjoyed this book While the synopsis focuses solely on the dancergirl online sensation, the plot transitions into a stalker story and how Ali reacts to suspected invasions of her privacy And that is really well done The tension in the writing is amazing I read the entire book in one sitting because I really didn t want to put it down As a main character, Ali s a fairly normal teenage girl She dedicated to dance, working at her dance studio to earn free classes and [...]

      Seriously, is this going to be a series Why Is there really a need to drag this on further into other installments I don t possibly see the potential at all Just because series are quite a bit popular nowadays with the crowd, it doesn t mean that a stand alone can be equally as powerful and enjoyable Sometimes a line just needs to be drawn You can only take material to a certain extent before it becomes unnecessary and boring, or overdone And being completely honest here, I have a sinking feelin [...]

      My Thoughts I have to admit that I was a little hesitant in going into this one, I am a big baby and I am freaked out by scary realistic things like a stalker, but I wanted to give this one a try and read something a little bit out of my comfort zone and try something new I am really glad that I did because although the idea of a stalker scares me to death, I didn t have as hard of a time reading this book as I thought that I would and I enjoyed most of it a lot We first meet our main character [...]

      Carol M Tanzman brings modern issues to life with Dancergirl How much of what you see on the Internet can you believe If shyboy is taking a video of dancergirl without her knowledge, is that OK Should people object on behalf of dancergirl s privacy, or is shyboy really a romantic dude who should be encouraged What if shyboy and dancergirl are carefully posing the videos dancer Ali knows her friend Charlie is videoing and posting the clips Does that make it OK, or are thy scamming the viewers And [...]

      Originally reviewed for In InterestAli has a passion for dance, a passion that soon leads her into danger as she gains the attention of the public Some people envy her, others idolise her and some people take their admiration for Dancergirl to an obsessive level The author, Carol M Tanzman, does a wonderful job at introducing something refreshing and new into the already very populated young adult scene It s a bold move introducing something with as much originality as Dancergirl has, but it cer [...]
