Summary

An illustrated retelling of the true life story of a young girl orphaned by war in Sierra Leone who became an international ballet star after being adopted by an American family.

At the age of three, Michaela DePrince found a photo of a ballerina that changed her life. She was living in an orphanage in Sierra Leone at the time, but was soon adopted by a family and brought to America.

Michaela never forgot the photo of the dancer she once saw, and decided to make her dream of becoming a ballerina come true.

She has been dancing ever since, and after a spell as a principal dancer in New York, now dances for the Dutch National Ballet in Amsterdam.

Beautifully and gently illustrated by Ella Okstad, "Ballerina Dreams" is the younger-reader edition of Michaela DePrince's highly moving memoir, "Hope in a Ballet Shoe."
