Blog Tour And Book Review For “Bright Burning Stars” By A.K. Smalls @AlgonquinYR

Best friends Marine Duval and Kate Sanders have trained at the Paris Opera Ballet School since childhood, where they’ve formed an inseparable bond forged by respective family tragedies and a fierce love for dance. When the body of a student is found in the dorms just before the start of their final year, Marine and Kate begin to ask themselves what they would do to win the ultimate prize: to be the one girl selected to join the Opera’s prestigious corps de ballet. Would they die? Cheat? Seduce the most talented boy in the school, dubbed the Demigod, hoping his magic would make them shine, too? Neither girl is sure.

But then Kate gets closer to the Demigod, even as Marine has begun to capture his heart. And as selection day draws near, the competition—for the prize, for the Demigod—becomes fiercer, and Marine and Kate realize they have everything to lose, including each other. 

Thank you Algonquin Young Readers for inviting me on to the Blog Tour and for gifting me an E-ARC in exchange of an honest review. All opinions are my own.

I’ve been obsessed with movies based on Ballet Dancer based movies . i.e. Center Stage, Black Swan, The Nutcracker. So I was really excited to be given the opportunity to read a book about Ballet Dancers, complete with a love triangle. But more so a love triangle between two girls, and the slot at Corps De Ballet. And you’ve got to have the boy that comes between them!

This was such a fun, drama queen, fluffy read, and the perfect cure for my thriller hangover! I had a great time reading this one, and I am sure a lot of young girls are going to like this one too. Not to mention how awesome the cover is, that was enough to make me want to read it!

This book was out May 21st Guys, I will put the Goodreads link below, so you can order from your favorite retailer, and add it to your Goodreads TBR!
