If you haven’t read Tiny Pretty Things, you should.
Tiny Pretty Things, is by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton and it is PHENOMENAL. The book is set in the competitive and dramatic world of ballet and is – well for lack of a better term, a page turner that you can’t put down.

Gillespie (Rise, The Society), Bayardo De Murguia (Shooter, Hombre), Barton Cowperthwaite (Center Stage: On Pointe, Fosse/Verdon), Tory Trowbridge(Broadway’s The Cher Show, American in Paris) and Jess Salgueiro (The Boys, Letterkenny).
But there has been an addition to the cast.
Anna Maiche (The French Teacher) is set as the narrator. I don’t know about all of you but when I see the word narrator, my mind thinks Gossip Girl and I am all sorts of excited for what is next.
Tiny Pretty Things is set in the world of an elite ballet academy. It follows the students as they are either on the rise and fall to greatness, in Chicago’s only elite dance school, the Archer School of Ballet. The school serves as the company school for the city’s renowned professional company: City Works Ballet. The Archer School has dancers from all walks of life: rich and poor, from north and south, etc. Yet they all share a talent and passion for dance and like most – when it comes to your dreams there is no other plan than making them come true.
Maiche plays The Archer School’s prize student, Cassie Shore. People are jealous of her – she’s envied and she’s got enemies – but who doesn’t. Things change for Cassie when an event changes everything.
Tiny Pretty Things is currently filming.
