This is a funny, tough, tender book. You will want to read it again. You will want your daughter to read it. You will want your son to read it. And then you will want to read it again -- again.

I LOVE this book! Anne tells the inside story of the bellydance world with a lot of heart & humor. Really entertaining and informative, it gives a glimpse the world behind the sparkles. I loved following her adventures and was so happy for her when she found true love at last.
I was given this book by a friend when I'd been dancing for a couple of years and was thinking of giving it up because I thought I was too old. But the books description of an 80-something year old dancer going out on a date convinced me to stick with it and here I am, over 60, still dancing, and enjoying many an adventure myself. Thanks Anne!

i didn't put this book down from start to finish! got it as a christmas present on a whim from my sister in law and was totally mezmerized. there are a few parallels i've found in my life to anne's story and what wasn't was a fun read. if you haven't started bellydancing by the end of this book i'd be surprised.
if you want to read a feel good, real life fairy tale i suggest you pick up this book and don't put it down til you're through!

I found this book largely disappointing. I was curious to read it because it's about belly dancing and I'm a belly dancer. Belly dancing is not often depicted in literature. This book fell flat for me ... Read full review

I picked this book up because I am a bellydancer. I enjoyed the dancing aspects and could relate, but this book is great even if you're a non-dancer. I couldn't put the book down and have read it at ... Read full review

Having done quite a bit of bellydancing myself, I really really wanted to like this book. I just couldn't. She made it all sound so pedestrian and un-exciting. A very disappointing book. Read full review

User Review  - Z - Goodreads

Loved this book for personal reasons. It's not the most well-written book I've read, and the story is not compelling as other books I've read. But I thought it was light, entertaining and honest. And since I started belly dancing for similar reasons it resonated. Read full review
