Carolina: Ein knapper Lebenslauf Carolina ist begabt, eigenwillig bis zur Sturheit und manchmal auch ungebremst explosiv Ob sie im Ballett tanzt oder in der Schultheatergruppe lernt, auf Kommando j mmerliche Tr nen zu vergie en Carolina tut alles, was sie tut, mit Haut und Haaren Und als sie sich zum ersten Mal verliebt, tut sie das, wie alles andere auch bedingungslos Although the cover of this book promised that the book was about a girl s wish to join the ballet, it wasabout the irrealistic love between her 13 year old self and 18 year old Lev For me, the fact that an 18 year old boy would fall for a young, inexperienced and girly 13 year old was reason enough to not take the storyline for granted The worst part is when 14 year old Eliska the name was changed from Carolina for the Dutch version why is not clear to me tries to kill herself by tak Although the cover of this book promised that the book was about a girl s wish to join the ballet, it wasabout the irrealistic love between her 13 year old self and 18 year old Lev For me, the fact that an 18 year old boy would fall for a young, inexperienced and girly 13 year old was reason enough to not take the storyline for granted The worst part is when 14 year old Eliska the name was changed from Carolina for the Dutch version why is not clear to me tries to kill herself by taking an overdosis pills because her boyfriend broke up with her This was just too dramatic for me Unfortunately, this book turned out to becheesy and romantic than about the exciting pursue of a career in the ballet The book makes up for this only at the end, when Eliska auditions for a spot at a drama school yet, this is only in the last two chapters or so Another thing that bothered me was that is is unclear for a very long time who the Mrs Haschlerka is who Eliska is dedicating her autobiography to It turns out to be someone of minor importance for the plot, and the relevation of her identity is somewhat of an anti climax To conclude, this book was slightly disappointing and not very interesting
