Seventeen-year-old Penny is a lead dancer at the Grande Teatro, a finishing school where she and 11 other young women are training to become the finest ballerinas in Italy. Tucked deep in the woods, the school is overseen by the mysterious and handsome young Master, who keeps the girls ensconced in the estate—and in the only life Penny has ever known.

But when Penny begins to recall memories that she can’t possibly account for, she begins to wonder who the Master really is—and what he really wants. With a kind and attractive kitchen boy, Cricket, at her side, Penny vows to escape the confines of her school and the strict rules that dictate every step she takes. But at every turn, the Master finds a way to stop her, and Penny must uncover the secrets of her past before it’s too late.
