Chelsea is the hardest worker in her gymnastics club and she's determined to make the Nationals team, and then the Olympics.

Telia makes her movements graceful as well as technically perfect. And when she finishes with a full straight-body somersault – something I have never been able to do – her delighted grin makes everybody else smile.
Even the judges.
Even me.
Even though I am wishing, more than anything, that I could perform like that. And knowing, with a horrible sinking feeling, that I never will.

Chelsea is the hardest worker in her gymnastics club and she's determined to make the Nationals team, and then the Olympics.

But new girl Telia has more natural talent. Chelsea gets jealous, which feels awful, because she really likes Telia, who isn't stuck-up like some other girls at gym. And it's not only envy that's bothering Chelsea – she's got family issues to worry about and her school friends are acting weird.

It's time for Chelsea to figure out what's really important – and just maybe take a leap into the unknown . . .
