In this New York Times bestselling memoir, the incredibly talented breakout star of Dance Moms and judge on So You Think You Can Dance brings her uplifting coming-of-age story about following her dreams and working hard to achieve success in both the dance world and in life. Maddie Ziegler knew one day she’d be a star—she just didn’t know how soon that day would come. At just eight years old, she was cast on Lifetime’s hit reality show Dance Moms and quickly won the hearts of fans everywhere with her natural talent and determination. Soon, she was capturing attention from all over—including pop superstar Sia, who cast her as her dance double in the incredibly popular music video for her hit song “Chandelier.” The rest, as they say, was history. In this inspirational memoir, Maddie explains the hard work she put into her rise to stardom and how she keeps her balance along the way—starring in music videos, going on tour, and becoming an actress in The Book of Henry with Naomi Watts and Jacob Tremblay. She also answers her fans’ burning questions with wise advice she’s learned on her journey. With honesty, charm, and humor, Maddie offers her unique perspective on making her way in the entertainment world as a young teenager, reflecting on the lessons she’s learned—and preparing for the exciting road ahead.
The mega-selling author of THE MADDIE DIARIES returns with the first novel in her brand-new middle grade trilogy about friendship, dance, and chasing your dreams. Twelve-year-old Harper McCoy has danced practically since she could walk, and she is making her mark as one of the top dancers at her studio. Until her parents drop the bombshell: they are moving to Florida, which means she'll have to say good-bye to her friends, her classmates - and her beloved dance team. When Harper arrives at her new studio, she realizes the competition in Florida will be fierce. And it doesn't help that her new team - the DanceStarz - have danced together forever and aren't exactly welcoming ... When disaster strikes right before a competition, the DanceStarz will have to work together to impress the judges, and they might just discover what friendship and teamwork are all about! Ages 8-13
INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER MADDIE ZIEGLER RETURNS WITH THE MUCH-ANTICIPATED SEQUEL TO THE AUDITION. After a successful first competition, twelve-year-old Harper is eager to keep on making her mark in DanceStarz. But lately she's been having a bit of "dancer's block" ... Thanks to a chance conversation, Harper lands a part in the school musical. Not only is this an opportunity to polish up her stage presence, but as the newbie at school, Harper is excited to make some more friends. Plus, Harper would have a big solo number-and maybe it would prove to everyone that she's ready to take that spotlight on the dance side too. But some of the DanceStarz are not thrilled that Harper has a new distraction so close to their next big competition-especially since they are going up against their archrivals, the Bells. Can Harper figure out how to shine and find her balance, onstage and off? Dance superstar and international bestseller Maddie Ziegler returns with the much-anticipated sequel to The Audition. PRAISE The Audition 'This book will certainly be a winner with girls aged 9 and up as it deals with the complexities adolescent girls face, angst, friendship issues, competitive natures and mean girl syndrome.' -- ReadPlus 'This book is so much more than dance! The trials these girls go through and the friendships that they forge make this book one that I could not put down.' -- Goodreads The Maddie Diaries 'This is a positive uplifting memoir from a very young hardworking star.

The recently released Tim Robbins film Cradle Will Rock reawakened worldwide audiences to composer Marc Blitzstein's runaway Broadway hit of 1937, and to the exciting times he lived in. Blitzstein went on to write Regina (based on Lillian Hellman's "The Little Foxes"), the definitive translation of Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht's Threepenny Opera, and an enormous amount of other music based squarely in American and Broadway traditions. Mark the Music is an engaging biography of this larger-than-life composer that reads like a novel. Practically every page features an illuminating and revealing pen portrait of the most important creative personalities in American culture—Orson Welles, John Houseman, Ernest Hemingway, Paul Robeson, Sean O'Casey, Agnes de Mille, Lotte Lenya, Melvyn Douglas, Shirley Both, Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Copland, Earl Robinson, Rudolf Bing, and many more. A vibrant journey through mid-20th century America comes to life through the eyes and experience of Marc Blitzstein. The issues that marked Blitzstein's day—censorship, repression, war—are all with us today. This is a story of passion, defiance, glory and tragedy, and ultimately of faith in democratic American values expressed through the arts.
