9780545327893: Gold Medal Summer

A gymnastics novel to flip for!

Joey Jordan loves gymnastics: the thrill of performing a backflip on the beam, the cheers of the audience when she sticks a landing. But even with all her talent and style, she's never quite made it to that gold medal stand.

Now big changes shake up Joey's life in and out of the gym. Joey wants to break out some daring new beam and floor routines--but she'll have to defy her strict coach to do it. Her best friend, Alex, is thinking about quitting gymnastics for good. And an old friend named Tanner just moved back to town, and he's suddenly gotten very, very cute. Can Joey handle all the challenges coming her way, and make her gold medal summer happen at last?

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

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

From Gold Medal Summer

Both of my hands hover over the beam as though I am trying to cast a spell on it. Then I press them down, propelling my body upward until I'm standing on it again, trying to ready myself to throw this dismount pass. Sometimes I can't believe that beam is my favorite event.

Alex's voice pops into my head, and the words I know she would be saying to me if she had actually shown up for practice: We should quit. We should just quit and get this over with now.

But the thing is I can't. I won't. Despite the fact that this week has been full of disappointments, it's only one week. Next week, next practice even, things will get better. So I shake them off, the fear and frustration. I throw my shoulders back, head high, take two steps forward, and extend my arms so the tips of my fingers are my focus. I am ready to do this. Again.
