5.0 out of 5 stars The Shy and Shining Kain April 26 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book is a wonderful autobiography of one of Canada's brightest stars. Ms. Kain openly and honestly relays the story of her rise to fame. She is candid and full of humility. Clearly, Ms. Kain is well aware of the alignment of the stars the night she took to the stage in her first principal role and she is as gracious, lovely and endearing today as she was being christened in Ms. Franca's office.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful book May 4 2001
By Erin C
Format:Paperback
I saved every penny I came across for 3 months to buy this book when I was in high-school; it was worth it! It is an amazing book that outlines the life of Karen Kain, in my opinion the best ballerina in Canada, and the trials and tribulations that she went through in her everyday life. It is very well written; it never provides a dull moment. I would read it again and again. I would recommend this book to any dancer or anyone interested in dance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book March 22 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I enjoyed this book and being a Canadian it's interesting to hear about how she grew up in Ontario. I thought it was good, and was very well written. response to the person who said she was stucvk up i met her to and while she waws getting mobbed walking down a hallway by kids she stopped to sign each and every one of there pointe shoes or paper and even let me take her picture so it was probably that she was just having a bad day. but the book displays her well .
