Book Review: Girl on Pointe by Chloe Lukasiak
Several years ago, I saw a commercial on the Lifetime Channel advertising a reality show about dancers and their moms called Dance Moms, and I was intrigued by it. So, I made sure to watch it when it came on, and I loved the show. I didn't even realize at first that I was watching the second season! (That's what I get for not having cable for a couple of years.) Chloe Lukasiak became my favorite dancer on the show because she was the underdog, and her mom, Christy Lukasiak was one of my favorite moms; the other moms that were my favorites were Holly Frazier and Jessalyn Siwa.
Fast forward to 2018 . . . I heard that Chloe had published her first book called Girl on Pointe. Since I loved Dance Moms so much, I decided to support Chloe by buying her book, especially since I felt like she was the underdog on the show. I finally made time to read her book this year.
I enjoyed reading Girl on Pointe because it gave some insight to Chloe's time on Dance Moms that I might not have read elsewhere. The fact that she kept those parts as positive as she could shows a lot of maturity for a young adult. It's also filled with little tidbits of her life and short stories and poems that she's written. What I enjoyed the most is that Chloe seems to be very grounded and hasn't let fame go to her head. She always seemed like a sweet girl on the show, and this book solidified that for me. Based on the book, I think Chloe's parents have done a really good job in raising her. She is definitely a good role model for other kids.
Four out of five stars is what I gave Girl on Pointe by Chloe Lukasiak. It's a perfect book for fans of the reality show Dance Moms. I definitely recommend it for kids, tweens, and teens.
