Ten-year-old McKenna has always been a good student-and great at gymnastics. So when her grades suddenly begin to fall, her teacher suggests a little extra help from a tutor. McKenna is horrified until she meets her tutor, Josie, a super-confident girl who also happens to be in a wheelchair. Josie encourages McKenna to focus on her strengths and work toward her goals one day at a time. But just as McKenna begins to shine in school, she's sidelined with a gymnastics injury--and her confidence unravels. Now she's worried about her grades and earning a spot on the competitive gymnastics team. Can she find a way to believe in herself again?

Great book! It teaches a really good lesson of friendship. Even when your friends suddenly start avoiding you and saying mean things, still stick by them, because you never know what they can be going through! Really enjoyed this book! Definitely a book I would read again, and again!

Mckenna is a perfectionist in gymnastics. But why can't she seem to figure things out in school? Everything is too hard. When her parents suggest she gets a tutor she is horrified, even at the thought. She can't even imagine how much embarrassment she would get if her friends found out! Then when she meets her tutor, she is very suprised to see that she is in a wheelchair. Josie helps her much more than just with reading and school, but also teaches her impoortant lesson about friendship, goals, and never giving up.
