DECISION FOR SALLY by Barbara Clayton


Email this review


Another teen-age career-romance but with something that is different. Mainebred Sally decides upon graduation from high school, that her local reputation as Seaport's best dancer warrants her going to New York to study ballet. Her sceptical teacher escorts her to New York, arranges for her to study at a suitable school, and leaves her to find out for herself whether or not her choice is a sound one. The bulk of the story concerns itself with Sally's painful discovery that she lacks the necessary dedication and stamina for success in this field, but she also learns that she has another direction in which her gifts may lead to success. Of particular merit is the portrayal of a young girl's bewilderment when first confronting the professional demands of a career training and the difficulties of life in a big city. On the romantic side, the story is fairly routine.
