"The world is big. Anna is small. The snow is everywhere and all around. But one night... One night, her mother takes her to the ballet, and everything is changed-- Anna finds a beauty inside herself that she cannot contain. So begins the journey of a girl who will one day grow up to be the most famous prima ballerina of all time, and who will inspire legions of dancers afer her: the brave, the generous, the transcendently gifted Anna Pavlova." -- Dust jacket.
