About This Book

From Publishers Weekly
The life of 12-year-old Billy, a coal miner's son from northern England, changes completely when he stumbles on a ballet class on the way to his weekly boxing lessons. Since admitting that he likes ballet in the fiercely macho culture of his town is tantamount to claiming that he is gay, Billy keeps his passion quiet. But when his teacher insists that he should audition for ballet school in London, family tensions inevitably arise.

This 2001 work by acclaimed dramatist Burgess is based on the screenplay of the award-winning movie of the same name.  Although the book is considered YA material, Burgess's exploration of sexual politics and the story's backdrop of the mining strikes that gripped Britain in the early 1980s will also appeal to adult readers.
