An extremely touching, heartfelt, and often humorous account of a young woman’s journey to live her passion. WISH reminds us, that despite our obstacles, we can live the life we dream. You won’t be able to put it down.”

Zippora Karz, Former Soloist, New York City Ballet

Author of The Sugarless Plum/ Ballerina Dreams

 

Grier Cooper expertly weaves her insider knowledge into this compelling read. Even if you’ve never danced en pointe, you may find yourself reaching for ballet slippers after reading Wish.”

Charity Tahmaseb, co-author of The Geek Girl’s Guide to Cheerleading

 

Grier Cooper’s WISH contrasts the elegant and disciplined beauty of ballet versus a gritty and often violent home life. She handles the topic of alcoholism with poignancy and honesty and choreographs in light-hearted moments of friendship, sibling rivalry and a budding romance to round out this touching story of art and love.”

Paula Yoo(Good Enough, HarperCollins)

Grier Cooper writes with emotional hooks that penetrate deeply. Her wonderfully-flawed characters are unforgettable. This book and its lovely dancing protagonist sparkle as if onstage!”

Corina Vacco, author of My Chemical Mountain

 

I absolutely loved WISH; it brought back such memories of high school, boys and ballet. What a gift this is to young dance students.”

Lauren Jonas, Artistic Director, Diablo Ballet

 

GrierCooper is completely able to express these years of sweat and tears with the accuracy of someone who has lived through it herself. It’s a great read; I highly recommended WISH!”
