    " This is a book written by Cheryl Burke from Dancing With The Stars. I was interested in reading about her background and how she got into dancing and then was invited to dance on the TV show. She did talk a bit about some of the celebrity stars she has danced with on the program. She seems to have something nice to say about each and every one of them. I didn't think this book was unusually revealing but it is a good book for a young person who is interested in dancing and might want encourage to follow their dreams. "

    " Oh Cheryl, I still love you, but you should probably stick to dancing. I think they were trying to be cute and creative but it came off as a bad high school essay, complete with the urge to red pen all over it! There's just not enough there yet to be a memoir, maybe in a few years. Although the last chapter where she talked about her partners was pretty interesting. Gilles is just as awesome as I thought and Chad Ochocinco...hmm... "
