Don’t Think, Dear (US)- pub date Feb 28, 2022

11/7/22, Canadian Jewish News (review): “A nuanced portrait… Part of what makes the book compelling is the way it focuses, unexpectedly, not on professional dancers, but on the far more typical story of dancers who tried and, somewhere along the way, failed or gave up.”
11/28/22, Publisher’s Weekly (review): “This will deepen readers’ understanding of the insular world of ballet.”
12/1/22, Library Journal (review): “Robb immerses readers in the dance milieu and what sacrifices are made for a beautiful fantasy… captures ballet’s romance as well as its dark and traumatic side.”
