CAN'T WAIT TO READ: Tumbling by Caela Carter

Release date: June 7th 2016
Publisher: Viking Books for Young Readers
Purchase: Amazon

Synopsis via Goodreads:
Work harder than anyone.
Be the most talented.
Sacrifice everything.
And if you’re lucky, maybe you will go to the Olympics.

Grace lives and breathes gymnastics—but no matter how hard she pushes herself, she can never be perfect enough.

Leigh, Grace’s best friend, has it all: a gymnastics career, a normal high-school life... and a secret that could ruin everything.

Camille wants to please her mom, wants to please her boyfriend, and most of all, wants to walk away.

Wilhemina was denied her Olympic dream four years ago, and she won’t let anything stop her again. No matter what.

Monica is terrified. Nobody believes in her—and why should they?

By the end of the two days of the U.S. Olympic Gymnastics Trials, some of these girls will be stars. Some will be going home with nothing. And all will have their lives changed forever.

  3. This sounds really good, I like gymnastics elements

    1. I love gymnastics period so this is right up my alley :)

      Thanks for coming by, Brandi!

  4. I feel like I've heard of this before, but I don't remember for sure... But it sounds so good! I readily admit I get completely caught up in the Olympics every time they come around, and gymnastics are definitely my favorite. This one has great timing, eh? :)

    Great pick, Shane!

    1. Perfect timing :) Yeah gymnastics is my second favorite in the Olympics. track being first.

      Thanks for stopping by, Rachel.

  5. Oh this would so be a guilty pleasure for me, gotta add it to the TBR. Good pick! WoW

  6. This sounds pretty good! I'm really interested in Gymnastics fiction. Like that show that was on ABC Family (make it or break it was the name I think) and so maybe I would like this one. Great pick and I hope you like it when you get to read it!

  7. I like the sound of this one. I was somewhat obsessed with gymnastics when I was younger. I haven't heard of it before now but I really love the Wonder Woman feel that I am getting from the cover. Hope you enjoy it once you get a chance to read it!
