Giselle is a cultured ballet student, the daughter of the famous ballerina Marina Parke-Vanova and the late dance historian Grigori Vanov. On her first-ever trip to "Westchest-ah", as her mother’s deranged boyfriend Blitz calls it, she meets the most beautiful boy she’s ever seen. Will introduces Giselle to the world beyond Manhattan, and for the first time, makes her feel comfortable outside her perfectly protected apartment on Central Park West. But Giselle has some issues to overcome–and some memories about her father that keep rising to the surface. With Will’s help, Giselle must come to terms with her family’s glorious–and not so glorious–past and focus on the future.
