One thought on “Book Club Qs

  1. Polly and Kat are my fav characters for personal reasons. Everyone has previous baggage that affects there reactions to things in the present. Kat’s character has become somewhat more confident and feeling supported by her troupe mates by the end of the book. The main characters will remain close and dance in to their old age.
