Description
Just in time for the Olympics: A gymnastics novel to flip for!

Joey Jordan loves gymnastics, but because she's a graceful gymnast in a sport that prizes muscle and power, she's never quite made it to that gold-medal stand. Now she's at a crossroads in her competitive career: Her parents are tired of the toll the sport enacts on their family. Her best friend, Alex, is thinking of quitting, and a cute boy named Tanner-whom Joey doesn't have time to see-makes a "normal" life sound awfully attractive.

But then her coach suggests some exciting new routines that play to Joey's strengths as a gymnast, and as she finds the bravery to navigate all the other changes in her life, her gold-medal summer might happen at last.

Drawing on her own experience as a competitive gymnast, acclaimed novelist Donna Freitas delivers both a terrific sports story and a classic middle-grade novel about stretching some limits, bending the rules, and finding your balance.
