When seventeen-year-old Natalya’s dreams of being a ballerina are killed in a car accident along with her father, she must choose: shut down—like her mother—or open up to love.

Last year, Natalya was attending the School of Performing Arts in New York City. Last year, she was well on her way to becoming a professional ballerina. Last year, her father was still alive.


But a car crash changed all that—and Natalya can’t stop blaming herself. Now, she goes to a regular high school in New Jersey; lives with her onetime prima ballerina, now alcoholic mother; and has no hope of a dance career.


At her new school, however, sexy soccer player Antonio sees a brighter future for Natalya, or at least a more pleasant present, and his patient charms eventually draw her out of her shell.
But when upsetting secrets come to light and Tonio’s own problems draw her in, Natalya shuts down again, this time turning to alcohol herself.


Can Natalya learn to trust Antonio before she loses him—and destroys herself?


I was intrigued by this book after participating in the Book Blitz, it seemed like a very interesting book with a unique theme for a Young Adult Book. 
Natalya had her whole life planned, she was to become the best ballerina she could be but then everything changed, not only for her but for her family as well. Having to move back to New Jersey wasn't something she could imagine, but being in her grandma's old house, things seem to get worse and worse. Natalya can't help but keep blaming herself for her father's death, normally she would turn to dancing but that not really an option at the moment.
The only good thing about coming back to New Jersey was the fact that her best friend, since she was little lives here, Becca. They would tell each other everything but life has seem to get in the way, now they are both keeping secrets from each other. Natalya knows she must tell someone about her mother's drinking but she keeps it hidden thinking that her mother is right, when she blames Natalya for the accident. 
When she meets Antonio, she tells herself she can't fall for him, he is a player someone who would make her life, even more complicated. Though, it doesn't take long for him to become a big part of her life, but Antonio has issues in his life, things that soon become part of Natalya's life as well. Although, she doesn't want to have another person in her life, turn to alcohol as a way of coping knowing that it would take time before she decides alcohol may not be the best idea but it does numb the pain. From her father, her mother, Antonio and most importantly, her dreams. 
If that wasn't enough, she finds out that her parents kept a secret from her and that it would change not only the way she looks at her mother but her father as well. 
One, Two, Three is a story about loss, love and dreams and how that sometimes it take time, the truth and healing to finally move forward and not remain in the past. From the hurt, lies and friendship, it is a truly lovely story to read that will break your heart a little and then make you smile after you reading the last line. 
If I had to sum this book up in three words, they would be Heartbreaking, Unique and Complicated.

Elodie Nowodazkij was raised in a tiny village in France, where she could always be found a book in hand. At nineteen, she moved to the US, where she learned she'd never lose her French accent. She graduated with a bachelor's degree in Modern Language & Linguistics, and later earned master's degrees in German Cultural Studies and European Studies. Unbeknownst to her professors, she sometimes drafted stories in class. Now she lives in Germany with her husband and their cat (who doesn't seem to realize he's not human), and uses her commuting time to write the stories swirling in her head. She's also a serial smiley user.
