The Walls Around Us

One part mystery, one part dance novel, The Walls Around Us is a wonderful example of how much can be done with a simple premise. Told in alternating narrators, one a young dancer with a place at dance school, one a convict at the local girls’ prison, The Walls Around us offers a perspective on what happens to those affected by a crime.

It is easy to draw many comparisons between The Walls Around Us and other, recently released novels. It has insight into the dance world like Astonish Me, an unrealiable teenage narrator like We Were Liars, and a vaguely supernatural quality like Belzhar.

If you like your dance with a side of Serial, this is the book for you.
