    "This is a cute romance story about two ice skaters. I think the concept is great. It gives people hope. It actually reminds me of the movie, "Love and Basketball," which I can relate to."

    "This is categorized as a young adult book but is written for quite a younger audience than a lot of the YA books that appeal to me. With that said, Ice Dancing is a cute book about ice skating that I would have really loved in middle school."

    "Really interesting book about ice skating. Hovers around the character Esperanza Flores, who was a substitute on the US Olympic figure skating team. The book is not a true story, but very realistic. Very good book and I recommend it!"

    "This is a very interesting book if you are a fan of historical fiction. However, it doesn't really teach you anything about learning to skate. I was hoping for a more instructional type of book. "

    "I would say this book is loosely based on the Nancy Kerrigan story. The odd things is the true life story was more over top than this fictional one. I suggest sticking to researching the real deal and leave this book behind. "
