LA Public Library 10 Best Books of 2014
Theo is better now.
She’s eating again, dating guys who are almost appropriate, and well on her way to becoming an elite ballet dancer. But when her oldest friend, Donovan, returns to their Chicago suburb after four long years with his kidnapper, Theo starts reliving memories about his abduction--and his abductor.
Donovan isn't talking about what happened, and even though Theo knows she didn't do anything wrong, telling the truth would put everything she's been living for at risk. But keeping quiet might have consequences far worse than she can imagine.
A heartbreaking yet hopeful story about learning how to let go of our most shameful secrets.

Horn Book Review Full Review
Brandy Colbert’s Pointe is an exception; it is the rare novel that is both nourishing and impossible to put down. [...] It’s also a deeply important and poignant book, and one I very much wish I’d written. McCormick Templeman
