Book Blitz: Off Balance

Off Balance, Book 1 of Ballet Theatre Chronicles
By Terez Mertes Rose
Genre: Women’s fiction (with YA crossover), performing arts related


Book Description:

Alice thinks she’s accepted the loss of her ballet career, 
injury having forced her to trade in pointe shoes onstage for spreadsheets upstairs. 
That is, until the day Alice's boss asks her to befriend Lana, a pretty new company member 
he’s got his eye on. Lana represents all Alice has lost, not just as a ballet dancer, 
but as a motherless daughter. It’s pain she’s kept hidden, even from herself, as every good 
ballet dancer knows to do. 

Lana, lonely and unmoored, desperately needs some help, and her mother, back home,

 vows eternal support. But when Lana begins to profit from Alice’s advice and help, 
her mother’s constant attention curdles into something more sinister. 

Together, both women must embark on a journey of painful rediscoveries, 

not just about career opportunities won and lost, but the mothers they thought they knew. 
OFF BALANCE takes the reader beyond the glitter of the stage to expose the sweat and 
struggle, amid the mandate to sustain the illusion at all cost.
