Samantha, a diminutive, shy outsider, finds herself wrapped up in the fast-moving, political world of high school. Being a nearly anorexic gymnast who hasn't yet hit puberty makes her fresh meat for the meanest bully in school: Becky Miles.
Evading Becky's disapproving eye, she quickly dives into the school's athletics: cross-country running and gymnastics. She soon discovers latent gymnastics talent that could protect her from Becky and her minions' teasing.
But Samantha has a terrible secret, something worse than anything Becky Miles could do to her. She doesn't dare tell her friends or parents. Only her brother, Mark, knows her deepest fears and dreams. When evil messages for Samantha surface at her home and school, her dark past begins taking over her life.
Will Mark be able to help her face her past? Or will she have to depend on her inner strength to overcome her worst enemy? Find out in Angela Bennett's compelling coming-of-age novel, Losing Grip.
