The title says it all

Marina has a lot to live up to as the daughter of a famous prima ballerina at the Bolshoi Ballet. But Marina's life of dance and privilege changes overnight when her mother disappears.
It's 1982 and the Cold War is in high gear. When Marina and her father defect to the U.S. things get even more complicated. Will Marina be able to continue her dance career even though she can't tell anyone who she really is? Will her father really be able to trade state secrets for her mother's safety? Is her new dance partner really KGB? Will they be able to maintain their distance from Uncle Gosha's mob connections? To top it all off, Marina has visions like her mother? Are they of the past, or the future?
This is spy novel with twists, turns, and serious danger. It is also the story of a teenager finding her way in a new country, learning a new culture, and making new friends.
