    Summary

    Tonight they're dancing in the ballroom of an old hotel. The July air presses in, the green trees hanging heavy with emerald leaves. There's a line for the club, snaking around the block.

    "No need to wait," the oldest sister says, and each sister echoes her in turn, whispering, their words rustling through the trees. "Remember," she continues. "We mustn't be remembered. Be careful of when you are seen."

    Summary

    In those days, it seemed to Bettrice that her sisters were too tired to dream of anything but mornings. Mornings long and golden and slow, mornings brisk in clear air, mornings quiet and grey. She was not the youngest, but she was young enough to be a little more awake than her older sisters, and when she dreamed, she dreamed of days spread out ahead of her, of nights filled with nothing but dreams.

    A Gothic horror fairytale retelling of the 12 Dancing Princesses.

    Summary

    The Barry sisters are the toast of the Starlight Ballroom. Pure, sweet, good and wholesome, they're everything that's right with the embattled American spirit. And they've danced for nearly six months non-stop in the hope of winning a fat prize to save their mother's dust-ravaged farm.

    But could their purity be a put-on? Their values a self-righteous sham? Or is it the contest itself that's a warped lie?

    Only one of the sisters holds the truth-bearing key, but she'll fight tooth-and-nail to keep her sisters safe until the glitter and lies come crashing down in a heap of crime and recrimination.
