A modern Russian fairytale retelling of deadly sirens, ballet, and theatre that’s perfect for a dark night. In this tale Kirkus calls “strong and insightful”, Giselle dreams of dancing in the ballet for which she was named, but her grandmother issues a haunting warning against performing the ballet, lest it lure the vain and deadly sirens who inspired the tale back to town. When the creatures arrive and begin claiming lives, Giselle is forced to choose between her passion for dance and saving the boy who whispers poems to her, snatching backstage kisses.
