    1. I m giving this book a generous four stars Why Well, I collect children s ballet books and I have read many by Jean Estoril aka Mabel Esther Allan , so this book filled in some of the gaps in her canon for me I m probably the only person that views her books as a cannon, but I think that as a group they are a very interesting slice of UK life in the late 50s and 60s The books are filled with early stories about air travel, sky scrapers, and interesting stereotypes of different nationalities I th [...]

    2. My favorite books by Jean Estoril are her Drina books but her other books are quite good too I like her sweet and somewhat dated style, they are basically the perfect English school girl stories I never did ballet but I have always been obsessed with it and I enjoy the window into that life that reading a Jean Estoril book gives me.

    3. Re read January 2016, and LOVED it I love the narration the twins are only 13 at the time of the book but the story is being told by a much older Dorrie so you have a very mature voice there view spoiler The twins are ballet mad, and audition for a top London ballet school Debbie is offered a scholarship but Dorrie is offered a paying place, which the family cannot afford to accept, and that causes a lot of strain between the girls as Debbie is resentful that Dorrie is holding her back they re t [...]

    4. My sister and I, identical twins, read this book when we were still in elementary school and we both adored it and have copies of it on our shelves today I gave it two years ago to my own daughter to read, and she cherished it, too I identified very strongly with the main character, a girl named Doria Dorrie Darke, who is in love with the ballet and wants to be wonderful but is plagued with self doubt, some fear, and jealousy of her twin, who is a physically gifted dancer and arrogant besides T [...]

    5. I loved this book The main character Doria Dorrie wants to be a ballet dancer than anything but isn t confident in herself as her twin, Debbie is But over the course of the story she become self confident in her dancing with the help of her new friends that she meets in school in London and the teachers there as well I d recommend this book to anyone who likes ballet and stories having main characters that change for the better

    6. Wonderful story about the Darke twins who go to London to study ballet, and how their rivalry threatens to destroy their relationship I think this is my favorite of all Mable Esther Allan s books I own at least 25 of them but she wrote dozens my set of Drina books disappeared when I moved in 1999 and I was too annoyed to replace them , and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes twin books, sister books, ballet books and or books set in London.

    7. I seriously dug this book Didn t even know it existed until CLM gave it a rave here on Estoril s prose reminds me of Roald Dahl at his most contemplative especially Danny, The Champion of the World So well written and engagingI m on to the Drina books, now Hopefully, they will give me incentive to drop some lbs and take ballet class, like I ve always wanted.

    8. This was my favourite book when I was growing up It guided me about many complex feelings, assumptions and insecurities in the guise of a ballet story as I took the steps into becoming a teenager.

    9. While there was nothing particularly standout about this book, I found myself coming back to it again and again because it was a fun and pleasant read.
