I purchased this book second hand for my daughter as I really enjoyed it as a kid & am hoping she enjoys it as much as I did. Turns out, the subject of the book became a professional skater and a professional dancer as well. The epitome of a high achiever. The sleeve of the book is missing, but apart from that, it is in good condition. The photos are great and I love the fact that they are 'dated' as they really capture that period of time. The hard work put in by this girl isn't dated and is still very relevant today. If you want to become a professional dancer, athlete, whatever... you have to be driven, focused and determined which this girl obviously was, and still is I'm sure. I guess it helps to have plenty of money and natural talent, but without the hard work of the individual, it wouldn't happen.

The privileged Katherine attends a summer class taught by the wonderful Curry, and is invited by this important personage to be in Superskates, a big skating show held once a year in Madison Square Garden. Follow Katherine as she leads you through her exciting life filled with new skates, pretty dresses, ballet lessons, skating competitions, skating shows, wonderful coaches, and best of all, a loving and supportive family. This book is priceless.

I read this book back in 1980 when I was in junior high. I remember being very impressed with young Katherine Healy reaching the junior skating level at the tender age of ten, and mastering those awful school figures -- something I could relate to as I took skating myself and struggled on chilly Saturday mornings to perfect my figures! It clearly showed her dedication to both her skating and ballet, and the love and support of her parents.

Katherine also starred in the movie "Six Weeks". She played the bright and talented 12-year-old leukemia stricken daughter of a wealthy cosmetic magnate (Mary Tyler Moore). She and her mother strike up a sentimental friendship with a California politician (Dudley Moore), and as one of Nikki's last wishes, the trio fly to New York City to see the sights. By chance Nicole assumes the lead of Clara in a few scenes of The Nutcracker ballet, after the head of the company sees her dance, but tragically her happiness is cut short by her illness.

It is the Nutcracker scenes that reveal Katherine's brilliant ballet talent. She went on to become a stunning principal ballerina with the English National Ballet, the Vienna State Opera Ballet Company, Les Ballets de Monte Carlo and the London Festival Ballet, as well as skating competitively and professionally. Currently, she is married to Peter Burrows and is a choreographer and appears with the Ice Theater of New York and in numerous guest skating events. An outstanding book of the early years of this talented artist! Highly recommended!

I read most of the "A Very Young_____" books over and over as a little girl and they all come back to me. In taking ice-skating classes now, I remember a lot of Katherine's story, especially when she talked about how light her "tracings" were on the ice. Anyone who doesn't know skating, will enjoy the introduction, and it will be a great nostlagia venture for older adults.
