Overview

Twelve-year-old Noelle Onesti has gymnastics in her blood. Not only does she have natural ability, talent and drive, but back in Romania, her mother was also an Elite gymnast. So if there's one girl destined to come home with a gold medal at the Junior National Championships, it's Noelle. But Noelle's a worrier, and she knows it won't be easy for her family to put up the money to send her to the competition. She tries to focus on her training, but when a boy asks her to the school dance, her mind is a whirlwind of dresses, crushes, and family responsibilities. Noelle knows that if she wants to achieve her Olympic dreams, she can't let anything get in the way. Her teammates-graceful Christina, quiet Jessie, and lively Britt-can't wait for the trip to Junior Nationals in Philadelphia, and Noelle doesn't want to let them down.

    Luv it

    Welcome to the world of elite gymnastics. Here you will experience pain, stress and alot of hard days. But to Noelle Onesti, thats the perks of it. Noelle is the worrier, but she stays strong with the help of the other Texas Twisters. But with nationals right around the corner, the anziety of being perfect and being able to stand up on the podiem, she is feeling more stressful than ever. Being the regional beam champion, her teammates(Christina, Jessie, and Britt) depend on her for advice ,and look up to her, and the last thing Noelle wants to do is let them down. I would reallyreccomend this book and Go for gold series
