Amy Young trained as a fine artist at Yale and received an MFA in painting from Indiana University as well as a law degree from Harvard. She lives in Spring Lake, Michigan.From School Library Journal:
Grade 1-3–When Belinda wins the lead in the ballet Cinderella, her competitor, Miss Lola Mudge, is not happy. After all, Lola has the perfect-sized feet for the role, and she always gets what she wants. In a move worthy of an evil stepsister, she locks Belinda in a closet on opening night and takes over her part. But right before the ball scene, Belinda is rescued by the fairy godmother dancer and rejoins the production. The usurper continues to masquerade as Cinderella but there is no denying that the big glass slippers meant for Belinda will not fit her tiny feet. The heroine reclaims her rightful place on stage, and the thwarted girl quits dancing and finds her true calling as a hockey player. The illustrations give a real feel for the ballet while portraying the action and the characters' varied emotions. Young's third Belinda story is a highly enjoyable and original mix of the Cinderella fairy tale and ballet, and a true case of the shoe fitting.–Catherine Callegari, Gay-Kimball Library, Troy, NH
