Various Positions: A novel

Various Positions - Martha Schabas Disappointing. It started out very strong--emotional, powerful, and difficult--but faded as it had room to reveal inconsistencies, a dated feel, an overly simplistic setup, and unbelievable actions on the part of the adult characters.Also, terrible cover--that's not the way romantic tutus hang, her front foot is turned in so she's not in the proper ballet position it's trying to look like, the ribbons are trying to make it look like she's in pointe shoes but the shape is all wrong. PLUS the bodiless legs are creepy.
