A novel by

 
Mistakes from the past return to haunt them...

When an unexpected tragedy in her family sends her mother into a deep depression, 17 year old Jane Aaron is forced to run the family dance studio on her own while struggling to keep her family from falling to pieces...and keep their family's shameful secrets hidden. The last thing she needs is a difficult new student with a grudge against the world to make her life even harder. Especially now that her health seems to be falling to pieces right along with her family.

Secrets with the power to shatter everyone they love...

Carter Fairchild thought he had it all planned out until a terrible accident leaves him handicapped and threatens to end all his dreams. Jane is the only one who can help him recover in time. But when their feelings for each other turn serious, will they allow their past mistakes and the dangerous secrets each of them hold destroy their chance at a future together? Or will the ghosts from both their pasts have the power to shatter everything--and everyone--they care about the most?

The Glass Ballet is a contemporary mature YA teen romance story inspired by the author's own personal 17 year journey through the roller coaster rider of developing and learning to live with lupus and fibromyalgia as a dancer...of battling depression, debilitating fatigue and chronic pain...and ultimately a story of finding and appreciating true love and the daily hope and strength that it gives. An inspiring novel for fans of The Fault in Our Stars by John Green and anyone dealing with arthritis, muskuloskeletal and autoimmune system diseases, chronic fatigue or any other chronic pain illness. Includes a letter from the author separating her real life inspirational facts from the story's fiction along with a short list of recommended website links for further reading and online resources.
