A Review of The Sugarless Plum


A Review of The Sugarless Plum

Looking for a perfect gift for your Type 1 or Type 2 diabetic friend, daughter or granddaughter. Then The Sugarless Plum is the book for you. However, be warned there is some explicit material in the book and parental discretion is advised.

Little girls have always dreamed of becoming ballerinas, up on the stage with their Prince Charming. This follows the story of Zippora Karz, once principal dancer for the famed New York City Ballet company. Her autobiographical novel details all her pitfalls and mistakes trying to make sense of being diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes as a young adult.

Autobiographical Zippora tells of her less than idyllic life as she worked her way to the New York City Ballet. Hard work and determination, with a little bit of luck, made her fulfill every girl’s fantasy. Living in New York and dancing to her hearts content, she had the almost perfect life until diagnosed with diabetes.

Karz was in the famed ballet company when she was first diagnosed or rather misdiagnosed as a Type 2. Then as her symptoms progressed she was finally diagnosed correctly with Type 1. She tells of her trials and tribulations as she calculated insulin doses with heavy duty dancing, practicing and just plain life.

As her awareness of diabetes increases, she finds her way with the right diet and insulin for her life situation. You will find this book informative, inspiring and enlightens as Zippora battles her own demons with diabetes and the stigma and ignorance regarding diabetes.

Her sixteen year career she dealt with personal tragedy, milestones and triumphs, with her dealing with diabetes. She details each step of acceptance and challenges associated with her dance career and travel in such a high profile dance company.

Zippora story will be inspiring for ballerinas everywhere who won’t let diabetes stop their dreams from coming true. This hardcover book priced at $22.95 will be a great Christmas or birthday gift for a close friend or just as an aspiring story of overcoming adversity and following your dream.
