Cuchifrita Ballerina from the Author: Deborah Gregory. Chanel has never written a song before, and she’s overjoyed when her first effort, “It’s Raining Benjamins,” proves a hit for the Cheetah Girls. But when another group accuses her of stealing lyrics, Chanel admits that not all the words were her own. Broken-hearted and ashamed, Chanel is so low that she’s considering taking up ballet, which could mean giving up on the Cheetah Girls—for good! American Ballet Theatre is recruiting junior dancers, and Chanel is going to get on that dance team no matter what it takes. But pliés and pirouettes are no substitute for true friendship, and Chanel will have to be on pointe if she is to keep the Cheetahs close to her heart.

Ballerina from the Author: Deirdre Kelly. A Globe and Mail top 100 book of 2012 . . . spellbinding yet harrowing . . . —Publishers Weekly A controversial look at the brutal backstage existence of some of the world's most celebrated ballerinas. Throughout her history, the ballerina has been perceived as the embodiment of beauty and perfection. She is the feminine ideal—unblemished and ethereal, inspiration incarnate. But the reality is another story. Beginning with the earliest ballerinas, who often led double lives as concubines, Deirdre Kelly goes on to review the troubled lives of nineteenth-century ballerinas, who lived in poverty and worked under torturous and even life-threatening conditions. In the twentieth century, George Balanchine created a contradictory ballet culture that simultaneously idealized and oppressed ballerinas, and many of his dancers suffered from anorexia and bulimia or underwent cosmetic surgery to achieve the ideal ethereal form. At the beginning of the twenty-first century, ballerinas are still underpaid, vulnerable to arbitrary discrimination and dismissal, and expected to bear pain stoically—but much of this is beginning to change. As Kelly examines the lives of some of the world's best ballerinas—Anna Pavlova, Marie Camargo, Gelsey Kirkland, Evelyn Hart, and Misty Copeland, among others—she argues for a rethinking of the world's most graceful dance form—a rethinking that would position the ballerina at its heart, where she belongs. Also available in hardcover.

The Incredible Voyage from the Author: Tristan Jones. Over the course of the intrepid six-year voyage recounted herein, Tristan Jones sailed a small craft on both the Dead Sea in Israel and Lake Titicaca in the Andes, respectively the lowest and highest bodies of water in the entire world. He traversed a distance equal to twice Earth's circumference, and found himself "a thousand times beyond the limits of endurance." He also dodged snipers on the Red Sea, capsized off the Cape of Good Hope, starved on the Amazon, struggled for 3,000 miles against the mightiest sea current in the world, and hauled his boat over the rugged Andes to find the legendary Island of the Sun, beyond which lay the most awesome challenge of all: a torturous odyssey - across 6,000 miles of uncharted rivers - in search of the coast.
