Overview

Long-limbed, red-haired Jessie might be the quiet girl on the Texas Twisters, but she's a force to be reckoned with where it counts-on the vault and in her heart. With freshman year on the horizon, Jesse decides that it's time to stop hiding in the shadow of her teammates and do the last thing anyone expects: join the cheerleading squad. Jessie proves that her gymnastic skills make her a perfect fit for the team, and becoming friends with the team captain makes Jessie feel like people care about her, and not just her talent.

But with cheer practice suddenly taking up all of her spare time, Jessie barely gets the chance to see her fellow gymnasts. Can Jessie bridge the gap between her new teammates and old friends? Or will she have to pick between being a cheerleader and being a gymnast?

Olympic gold medalist Dominique Moceanu and Alicia Thompson present The Go-for-Gold Gymnasts, a fliptastic series full of heart, humor, and spirit! Follow the four girls as they navigate the world of competitive gymnastics, try to balance their passion with normal lives, and learn to believe in the power of friendship.

I love this book! Jessie, the main character reminds me a lot of my self. I'm shy and mostly quiet. But, I'm an AMAZING vaulter. I love vault because I'm good at it: fast and strong. Just like Jessie, I want to become an elite gymnast. I'm much younger then her, though.

Cinderellas glass kitten heels made clinking sounds every time the queen bee took a stap. She headed for Anna, the pretty redhead from Frozen who didnt want to join her exclusive clique. "Aaaaannaaa" she drawled, trying to get her attention. Anna looked up, thinking it was her boyfriend, Kristoff, but instead it was the last person she wanted to see. Cinderella, the most popular girl at disney high. Cindi smiled warmly at her. Anna didnt know why she wanted her in the Royals. Cliques were NOT Annas style. Cindi picked up a tube of Timeglass to her lips. Anna also hated lip gloss. Cindi pulled a white invitation out of her Coach sling purse. "Open." She said. While Anna took the invitation suspiciously, Cindis cell rang. Taffeta tapped her pink platform sneaker in annoyance. She had another ah-mazing gossip story and didnt wanna forget it. She was the official gossip of all of Disnry parks and the Wreck it Ralph girl never missed a story. Next part on next result hope u like it! True
