A simple little novel that deserves popularity is Norma Klein's Hiding…. This short book is about an eighteen-year-old girl who is spending a year in London studying ballet. She stumbles into a love affair that forces her to re-evaluate her life goals, her personality, and her family. She has a very fecund sister, an aloof and sometimes sarcastic brother, and parents who have a most unconventional relationship. How our little ballerina changes—and what changes she initiates—are intriguing. Hiding documents far more than the life-changing week she spends in her parents' attic. Both the dialogue and characters are plausible and while this book is primarily directed at young readers, I think that it has tremendous appeal to readers of any age. I relished every page.
