Work harder than anyone. Be the most talented. Sacrifice everything. And if you’re lucky, maybe you will go to the Olympics.   Grace lives and breathes gymnastics—but no matter how hard she pushes herself, she can never be perfect enough.   Leigh, Grace’s best friend, has it all: a gymnastics career, a normal high-school life... and a secret that could ruin everything.     Camille wants to please her mom, wants to please her boyfriend, and most of all, wants to walk away.   Wilhelmina was denied her Olympic dream four years ago, and she won’t let anything stop her again. No matter what.   Monica is terrified. Nobody believes in her—and why should they?   By the end of the two days of the U.S. Olympic Gymnastics Trials, some of these girls will be stars. Some will be going home with nothing. And all will have their lives changed forever.
From the Hardcover edition.

I feel like I’ve been waiting for Tumbling by Caela Carter forever; I first heard about it last year and it immediately made my must-have list because GYMNASTICS YA.

Have I mentioned I’m a huge fan of Make It Or Break It, the short-lived ABC Family series, and sports YA in general? The synopsis makes me think this is definitely going to be a lot like that show when the stakes get high. And as we know…when the stakes get high, that’s when the competition really gets fierce.

Is Tumbling on your TBR? Are you a fan of sports in your books? What are you waiting for this week? Let me know and I’ll stop by!

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that book bloggers are eagerly anticipating.

    I’ve never read anything with gymnastics in it before but this sounds great! Amazing pick and I’ve added it to my Goodreads 😀
    (By the way, I love your blog so I followed on Bloglovin! and also followed on insta – @flippingthroughpages)
    Here’s our WoW!

  2. I have a deep love of gymnastics and in fact, wish I’d have taken it up when I was younger. So naturally, you already have my attention with this one! I love the sound of it and there definitely aren’t a ton of gymnastic-centered books out there – for any age range. Awesome pick my friend^^ x
