Music Boxes by TOnja Drecker

I was intrigued by the synopsis, but I didn't expect to be so sucked in by the story. I read it in one sitting, once I started reading, I was totally pulled into the story and couldn't put it down. The writing is absolutely amazing, I felt like I was in the story, right along Lindsey and her creepy teacher. :)

So Lindsey and her family moved from Nebraska to NY, because her little sister was accepted to Julliard. She was only 8 and brilliant. It made Lindsey a bit bitter, she was a ballerina, but her dream was put on hold a bit. She got to go to the community center for the lessons, but they weren't the best. On a way to the pizza place, she runs into Madame Destinée, who offers her dance classes for free if she agreed to perform every night. Lindsey is happy to be a part of something like that at first and sneaks out every night. But she started to get suspicious, her fellow dances disappearing, for private lessons and strange music boxes appearing with figurines just like her fellow dances. 

She had to uncover the mystery and find her own strength.

I loved the story, it was soo good. :)

I only desire your talent...”

Twelve-year-old Lindsey McKay's biggest dream is to be a famous ballerina. But after moving to New York, she ends up at the Community Center with a teacher who’s a burly bear in tights.

When she meets Madame Destinée, the teacher of a top dance school who offers her classes for free, Lindsey can't believe her luck. In exchange, she must perform in the school’s exclusive midnight shows, ones sure to make her a star. But something’s not right...

One by one, the other dancers disappear. Each time they do, a music box with a figurine just like the missing ballerina joins Madame Destinée’s growing collection. If Lindsey doesn’t discover the truth about the dance school, she might end up a tiny figurine herself.
