Netflix’s new teen drama Tiny Pretty Things have certainly got viewers talking. The new show, which is set in the cutthroat world of elite ballet dancing, debuted on the streaming platform on Monday and was met with initial excitement but now many viewers have called out the series for a number of reasons.
The ten-episode series, which has been described as Black Swan meets Gossip Girl, follows a young ballerina named Neveah (Kylie Jefferson) who is offered the chance to attend an elite ballet school after one of its star students mysteriously falls to her death. As the story unfolds, Neveah begins to learn some unsettling truths about her new school and classmates.
The show has been adapted from young adult novel Tiny Pretty Things and its sequel Shiny Broken Pieces by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton. And it seems readers of the books are not happy with Netflix’s adaptation.
