Trade Paperback

DREAM BIG! Gemma loves gymnastics. But she's just had the worst class EVER, and her coach isn't happy. Is Gemma's life as a gymnast over? Or will her clever plan keep her on the team?


Gemma stood at the start of the runway, ready to run. She pictured a handspring in her mind—legs together, butt tucked in . . . up and over the vault. But she didn't run yet. She was waiting for Michael to nod his head.
