Arabella threw herself into ballet when she lost her mom. Her whole life revolves around dance and she will do anything to be skinny and succeed. She is completely focused until a new guy shows up in town with an amazing accent and a kind heart. She has told herself over and over again that she's not allowed to date, but she can't help getting close to him. When Arabella has a flashback of a memory of her mom, she carves it into a tree outside her room to make sure she never forgets it. The flashbacks of her mom both keep her going and hold her back, ballet gets more intense every day, she eats less and less, and her feelings  for the boy get stronger. How much can one girl take before she reaches her breaking point?

Your story is great, but It keeps repeating paragraphs. Why?

Real talk, that is a very protagonist-y name. I feel like main girl characters always start with vowels for some reason... :/ 
                              
                              Anyway, like the story so far!

Me and my sister-in-law were commenting on how in movies people find "love" by bumping into people (Frozen, The Fault in Our Stars, etc...) 
                              I should go around bumping into girls at the store.  LOL
                              
                              In all seriousness, sweet scene here. I like it.

Page 2: This is really good . . . such a romantic scene, his holding her pointe shoe . . . he's from such a different world and yet ". . . sparks shot up her arm." You're definitely in touch with a young woman's fantasies . . . well done!!
