This is a great biography about a dedicated ballerina who has been struggling with diabetes . This book covers not only Zippora's struggles with her disease but also her struggles in life in general. Having taking years of dance classes I was really drawn into the story of how Karz became a ballerina and her journey to becoming a ballerina. Next as a reader I was then immediately empathetic to her struggle with her disease as well as her ability to learn how to live with this disease and still practice dance. I feel that this book would be great for anyone who is really struggling with any major illness or set back in their life. As a reader you feel that pains and struggles that Zippora goes through while trying to deal with her painful diagnosis and how she is able to overcome her struggles. I think that someone who reads this book can use Zippora as an example of how to deal with those road blocks that stand in your way and still fulfill your dreams. This was a great quick read that most people would enjoy.

    Count me in! From your review, it sounds like this is almost an un-intential self-help book....that's good! May speak to some that wouldn't have sought guidance otherwise.
