The Art of Falling by Kathryn Craft

About the book:
All Penny has ever wanted to do is dance—and when that chance is taken from her, it pushes her to the brink of despair, from which she might never return. When she wakes up after a traumatic fall, bruised and battered but miraculously alive, Penny must confront the memories that have haunted her for years, using her love of movement to pick up the pieces of her shattered life.

She has lived in New York, Maryland, Ohio, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, and now lives with her husband in Doylestown, PA. THE ART OF FALLING is her first novel.

I am a huge fan of debut authors. I was drawn to this book because I love the art of dance. I took tap when I was a kid, nothing more than that. As a woman I can also understand the frustration with body image.
Penny was a character you could get behind and root for. A good debut.
