They look so sweet and beautiful...but what is the dark, unlovely truth?

Harley's a college guy with a brain in his head. Those old tales about the ballet school and the evils hidden within its walls are for the town's fools and gossips. Then Cassandra, one of the dancers, whirls into his life. Harley is at first enchanted. Then he's doubtful. And then he's terrified. But it's already too late.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"As Harley begins dating one of a group of ballerinas, he starts to become suspicious of the potentially threatening behavior of the rest. The narrative moves believably from...romance to somewhat chilling horror.... Recommended for those who want more than just a romance." --Kirkus Reviews

"For those who like their ballet books with a touch of mystery and horror, Unlovely is a very enjoyable book. The writing is outstanding! There are sentences and paragraphs that are so hauntingly evocative you will want to read them two or three times.... It is a fun, fascinating read. The story moves as gracefully, beautifully and tragically as the ballet itself." --Ballet Connections

"So many YA novels are written from a female perspective, so it's nice to occasionally read one with a male POV. Celeste Conway writes a believable guy in Unlovely." - Forever Young Adult

"The right mix of mystery and reality. The murders are shrouded in mystery, creating a suspenseful atmosphere. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romance or mystery." --TeenReads.com

"Chilling new young adult thriller. A reader of any age may become engaged in the well-written suspense of the story." --Reviewing the Evidence

"This is a twisty, dark, deep story...I was really blown away by [Celeste's] writing.... Intense and thrilling.... Complicated and deep, and layered and passionate, and beautiful and creepy, and scary all at the same time.... The writing in this book is so beautiful. This is a great book for anyone who likes [a] twisted and dark...romance." --YA Asylum

"Conway's newest has writing that [is] beautiful.... Harley's experiences hit on the unsettling feeling of returning to a hometown that is at times both strange and familiar...with the extra peril of a longstanding mystery added in." --Booklist
