Yvette (Evie) used to believe in love, that is until her parents got divorced. So now she's donating all the romance novels she used to devour to a little free library. But a stranger says you need to take a book when you give a book so she dicks her hand in and pulls out Instruction for Dancing.

She soon realizes that when she sees people kiss, she can read their past and future. Most of the time the future ends in sadness. Hoping by returning the book to the dance studio whose address is in the back, her visions will go away. But while there she's convinced to take lessons and ultimately enter an amateur competition. She's paired with X (Xavier) and there's an instant attraction.

Can her aversion to romance be swept away in dance and X and will her visions go away? Read the book to find out. You'll really enjoy it. ( )

Nicola Yoon does it again - a romance novel to break your heart. In this one, Evie has become cynical about love after her parents' messy divorce and father's affair. She decides to donate all the romance novels from her bookshelf to a community library and meets a strange lady who gives her a book "Instructions for Dancing" as a swap. After meeting the old lady, Evie experiences visions every time someone kisses in front of her - she sees when the couple met -when they started dating and finally when the relationship ends. In an effort to stop or sort out why she is having these visions, Evie goes to the dance studio listed in the book. There she meets X (Xavier) and is drawn into competing in a dance competition with him and falling in love. There are some interesting turns in this when Evie's two girlfriends fall in love with each other and Evie sees how they break up. The ending of the book in true Nicola Yoon style is gut wrenching. Evie learns that ( as the quote says) "It is better to have loved and lost, than to never have loved at all." Slightly older readers due to copious use of the F-word unfortunately. ( )

Evie Thomas doesn't believe in love anymore. Especially after the strangest thing occurs one otherwise ordinary afternoon: She witnesses a couple kiss and is overcome with a vision of how their romance began . . . and how it will end. After all, even the greatest love stories end with a broken heart, eventually. As Evie tries to understand why this is happening, she finds herself at La Brea Dance Studio, learning to waltz, fox-trot, and tango with a boy named X. X is everything that Evie is not: adventurous, passionate, daring. His philosophy is to say yes to everything--including entering a ballroom dance competition with a girl he's only just met.Falling for X is definitely not what Evie had in mind. If her visions of heartbreak have taught her anything, it's that no one escapes love unscathed. But as she and X dance around and toward each other, Evie is forced to question all she thought she knew about life and love. In the end, is love worth the risk? ( )

I thoroughly enjoyed "Everything, Everything" when I first read it but "Instructions for Dancing" was soooo much better! This novel had more depth and was extremely touching. I adored Evie and X, they were both down-to-earth and realistic. I also loved all the supporting characters, especially Fifi who was Evie and X's dance instructor.

The subtle fantasy element was handled well and I found all the dance sequences interesting. However, the end was heartbreaking. A wonderful read and the girls will love it. ( )

The ending was unexpected and utterly heartbreaking. Great storytelling. ( )
