(This is a review of all three books of this trilogy, which I have in an omnibus edition, though Goodreads doesnt seem to.)These books tell the story of Moths efforts to become a dancer. Starting just after she fails the audition for the Royal Ballet School, they detail her life at another full-time ballet school, living with her great-aunt and her Australian cousin (another would-be dancer), up until it comes time for the audition for the Royal Ballets Senior School.They dont have the sort of hot-house, ballet-is-the-most-important-thing-in-the-story-world feel of the Drina books, or even the ballet-is-the-most-important-thing-to-the-heroine feel of Lorna Hills Sadlers Wells series - despite the fact that ballet really is the most important thing to Moth.

But shes a more rounded individual than Drina or Veronica, more capable of fun and more inclined to behave like the child she is.Likewise, the story is more realistic than other ballet books- Moth does not keep getting lucky breaks, or keep impressing her teachers with her dedication and brilliance - though she is considered a promising pupil. Nor does any sudden accident put paid to her dancing for weeks at a time.

And when it finally comes time to move on from the Fortune School, (view spoiler)[her feet turn out to be unsuitable for pointe work, and she ends up not at the Royal Ballet, a ballerina in waiting, but at a modern dance school, where part of the reason shes accepted is her interest in choreography (hide spoiler)]
