Harriet's Ghost

Harriet's Ghost

by Bridget Crowley




Marianne is an extremely talented ballet dancer, but her friend Harriet is worried about her—being skinny is common enough in ballet school, but Marianne seems to be making herself ill. Harriet is excited to be accompanying Marianne to dance at the Opera, but as Marianne grows weaker, Harriet sees another dancer waiting in the wings. Can it really be Giuseppina, a famous 19th century ballerina, reaching out from the past?
