This reminded me of Goosebumps, in a good way.
Lindsey dreams of being a famous ballerina, and she is talented enough that her family moves from Nebraska to New York so she can pursue her dream. Madame Destinee (great name) says she has talent!
What could go wrong? Well, it’s weird the way girls keep disappearing, and at the same time, new music box ballerinas start appearing.
So, it’s scary, but in a fun Goosebumps way. I liked the larger message of being a right sibling and the sacrifices that family makes for each other.
This is a fun, quick read for middle-grade kids.
