in Grades 6 and up
The main character, Joey, is trying to be in a healthy mental space as she prepares for Regionals. Her best friend and teammate is considering quitting gymnastics all together. Joey's older sister is a retired Regionals gymnastics champion, her coach is a beast, and her parents have been hinting that maybe it's time for her to enjoy real life, instead of her constant training regimen.
This content is a shade too mature for many upper elementary readers; it sits better for 6th grade and up. Lots of appeal for anyone who relates to the tension between the desire to be great at one thing and the desire to enjoy lots of other things, too.
The best discussion questions, of course, are generated by and contemplated by readers. These questions are designed to avoid major spoilers about the book, and to provide a starting point for teachers, parents, and student reading groups.
