5 it’s awesome to be yourself stars!!
My brother introduced me to Lindsey Stirling a while ago… before she was even touring. I have to say I was hooked from the first youtube video. She has such charisma on camera and is instantly likable. I even had my husband listening to her… Then my brother said guess what Lindsey is touring! So we bought tickets and VIP passes because who could pass up meeting her! She is just such a nice person, she took her time with each person and seemed genuinely interested in you and what you had to say. (mine wasn’t a lot since I get star struck easily.) Then I took my husband with me the next time she was in town and did the VIP again only this time my daughter was heartbroken we weren’t taking her. She had also become a Lindsey Stirling super fan asking to watch her videos all the time. My brother even bought her a violin at her request for Christmas. So the following year when Lindsey came to town all of us including my father surprised princess ballerina with tickets to meet and watch Lindsey Stirling. I wasn’t sure how it was going to go but we brought ear plugs since we knew we’d be up front… our daughter was ecstatic! Lindsey was so sweet to her and even answered her questions at the VIP meet and greet.
So when I heard this lovely young woman was writing a book I knew I had to have it! Her book did not disappoint.. It was light and airy where it needed to be and full of backstory. Not to say it didn’t discuss the trials and tribulations in her life, however they were handled with care. Some of her chapters make you want to hug her and tell her she will get through and some will make you laugh out loud. Some of my favorite parts involved her mission trip… and that young man she helped out. Her being candid about her eating disorder will definitely help other young women in the world. I don’t want to go into to much detail in this book as it’s her story to tell. However if you haven’t heard of Lindsey Stirling I highly suggest you look her up on youtube. Some of my favorites are Moon Trance, Roundtable Rival, and Shadows…. princess ballerina will play Shatter Me on repeat all day long. (it is also the song she requested be played at the concert)
I would highly recommend this book to everyone from young teen to adult. When the world has so many bad role models for young adults to look up to Lindsey Stirling is a diamond in the rough. I am so thankful my brother introduced me to her music and that I could pass that love for her music onto my daughter.

I had no idea she wrote a book! I love her music, I got hooked after listening to some of her game-music covers, but the original pieces are fantastic.
Her book was really nice. I have been trying to read more biographies/memoirs and hers was great.

I don’t usually read biographies, etc, bit I might give this one a try
I would it was an easy read mostly short chapters… If I wanted to put it down and pick it up a week later it didn’t feel like I forgot anything.
