As a dancer with the Manhattan Ballet Company, nineteen-year-old Hannah Ward is living her childhood dream. She gets to be up on stage in front of adoring crowds every night. And while she might not be a prima ballerina yet, she's moving up the ranks and surely if she works hard enough she can make it happen.
But devoting her whole life to ballet leaves very little time for anything else: friends, family, school have all fallen by the wayside. Hannah doesn't mind, until a chance encounter in a restaurant brings Jacob into her life. He's cute, he plays guitar and he's offering a whole future that Hannah never considered. And now she must choose between her lifelong dream or what could be the love of her life. . .

Bea looks at me, her blue eyes affectionate and warm. "But what do you think happens after you get promoted, Hannah?" She asks softly. "You have even less of a life than before. It only gets harder." She stands to face me and holds my gaze. "The Rubies solo is huge. And you probably are on your way to being promoted. But you have to make up your mind. You can either have a life, or you can dance. But you can't have it both ways."
