Balancing Act

Balancing Act

by Rebecca Larson

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
This Olympic High entry has bitter rivalry between two girls on the gymnastics team, encouraging boyfriend, climactic meet at which insight is gained and a plot which starts to creak toward the end. A new coach from Romania arrives, and her apparent favoritism of Dee over Alex sets the conflict in motion. Their friendship cracks, Dee takes over Alex' boyfriend, and a burning desire to beat Alex pushes Dee into a dangerous routine. Predictable, but there is some tension, and sympathy is developed for the characters, even if the dialogue is a bit stilted.
