In 1995, tiny Dominique Moceanu was just thirteen and a half when she captured the heart of the nation by becoming the youngest gymnast ever to win the senior all-around title at the U.S. National Championships. Just a year later, this little pixie's army of admirers multiplied when she became a key member of the only American women's team to win Olympic gold. Those heights, however, concealed a darker back history, which comes to the fore in this unflinchingly honest memoir. In Off Balance, she writes candidly about her difficult childhood, her demanding father and coaches, and her own private battles in injuries and self-esteem. A rare look behind fleeting moments of perfect grace.
