Description

"Ever feel like someone's watching you? Me, too. But lately it's been happening in my room. When I'm alone."
A friend posted a video of me dancing online, and now I'm no longer Alicia Ruffino. I'm "dancergirl." And suddenly it's like me against the world--everyone's got opinions.
My admirers want more, the haters hate, my best friend Jacy--even he's acting weird. And some stalker isn't content to just watch anymore.
Ali. "Dancergirl." Whatever you know me as, however you've seen me online, I've trained my whole life to be the best dancer I can be. But if someone watching has their way, I could lose way more than just my love of dancing. I could lose my life.

Our customer reviews

Alicia Ruffino is a dancer. And when one of her friends posts a video of her online, everyone knows her as dancergirl. There is admiration and adoration. And behind a mask of false pretense, watching her every move, someone is stalking her. Wanting to be near her, to observe her. And that person wouldn't stop from hurting her either. Dancing is her passion. It was her private joy, her excersise and now she's sharing her talent with the whole world. DANCERGIRL was my favourite book about dancing so far. Ali was a cool character and very natural, modest and confident about her talent and her passion for it. The love story underlying the overall stalking drama was beautiful. Ali's best friend Jacy is always there for here and would do anything for her. Jacy is such a sweet person. Whereas Ali's stalker is a major creep. It could be anyone who stalks Ali and it only takes a few chapters to feel watched yourself. 4/5 **** dancergirl - It's a fine balance between passion and obsession. Well-written and relevant YA contemporary read! Dancergirl was more exciting than any thriller and I'll happily pick up its companion novel, CIRCLE OF SILENCE, set at Washington Irving High, too.show more
