She stuck that series as if it were a floor pass. Amazing!
About the Book
Title: The Flip Side
Author: Shawn Johnson
Genre: YA Contemporary Fiction; Sports Fiction
Synopsis: Charlie Ryland has a secret.
She may seem like your average high school sophomore—but she’s just really good at pretending.
Because outside of school Charlie spends all her waking hours training to become one of the best gymnasts in the world. And it’s not easy flying under the radar when you’re aiming for Olympic gold…especially when an irresistible guy comes along and threatens to throw your whole world off balance.
So far I’m mostly enjoying this lighthearted YA book! Charlie is a bit boy-crazy for my liking, but this is YA and it’s not so much that it really takes away from the story. Just makes me roll my eyes once in a while. This book is going pretty quickly, too. I would probably be done with it by now if I would just sit down and read it for a stretch in the afternoon, instead of picking it up in bits and snatches when I have a break at work.
What are you reading this week?
Until the next chapter,
