"Originally published in hardcover in slightly different form in the United States by Alfred A. Knopf, an imprint of Random House Children's Books, New York, in 2014"--Title page verso.
|Summary, etc.:||Michaela DePrince was known as girl Number 27 at the orphanage, where she was abandoned at a young age and tormented as a "devil child" for a skin condition that makes her skin appear spotted. But it was at the orphanage that Michaela would find a picture of a beautiful ballerina en pointe that would help change the course of her life. In this engaging, moving, and unforgettable memoir, Michaela shares her dramatic journey from an orphan in West Africa to becoming one of ballet's most exciting rising stars.|
