Get in the Olympic spirit with Gold Medal Summer


 
Gymnast Joey Jordan’s biggest goal is to be a gold medal champion. Again and again, she is deprived of the gold despite her intensive workouts and nonstop practices.


Working every spare moment to perfect her moves, while trying to ignore rival gymnast Sarah Walker, is quite overwhelming for Joey—especially when her parents only support her financially. After years of big sister Julia competing in gymnastics, Joey’s mom can’t handle the anxiety while her dad can’t restrain from yelling at the coach! Though Joey is naturally jealous of her sister’s successful run as a gymnast (she became a national champ at 16!) and still doesn’t get why she quit, Julia proves to be the best source of encouragement. Who better to build up your confidence than a talented big sis, right?

 

Joey’s BFF Alex is on the team as well, but when she finds out Alex has been seeing a boy, Joey doesn’t know what to do. The coach’s strict “No boys allowed” policy could mean Alex gets kicked off the team. Meanwhile, Joey finds herself distracted by a boy when she reunites with her childhood friend, the blonde-haired, blue-eyed cutie Tanner. With a super busy schedule (and the coach’s rules) fighting against her, Joey risks losing the opportunity to spend time with her crush! Are the sacrifices really worth it?

 

With Julia’s help and her coach’s new routines that highlight her talents, can Joey finally reach her dream? Will the gold finally be hers? Or will the pressure prove to be too much for Joey as she deals with the stress put on her family and friends? Find out in Donna Freitas’ Gold Medal Summer, available now. Perfect for the upcoming summer Olympics, this read is a must to add to your list.
