like a strong girl-isn't that right, Mom?"

strong until someone takes away my ballet shoes. Then I just
become unbearable. Although, according to Atara, l'm pretty
much always unbearable. Isn't that fun?

longer a smooth and uncomplicated pirouette in the park. First,
there's the struggle for Bella Rena to find her identity. Who is she
if she can't dance? And how can she ever truly be happy without
her beloved and all-encompassing pastime?
- And then there's her brother Naftali, who finds himself out of
yeshivah and thus out of step as well...
