Chalked Up (by Jennifer Sey)

Rating 4

Reviewed by Abby, grade 6

I would definately recommend this book to any athlete, a gymnast, or someone who is just a fan of the sport.  The book tells about the ups, downs, & everything in between of a gymnast's life.  The book tells about Jennifer Sey's life of an aspirign gymnast.  How she learns new skills, becomes the 1987 National Champion, athlete of the year, and still has time for felling like a failure.  But maybe with the help of her family, friends, and coach Lolo, she may see that she isn't as terrible as she thought.
