Product Description

Jessie Ivy is a long-limbed, quiet girl on the Texas Twisters gymnastics team. Just starting her freshman year, she decides that she doesn't want to be the shy wallflower anymore and tries out for the cheerleading team. With her tumbling capabilities, she easily makes the team. But with cheer practice taking up all of her time, she finds it nearly impossible to make time for her gymnastic friends. Will she have to choose between the two, or can she find a way to make her friendships balance?

Publisher's Description

Long-limbed, red-haired Jessie might be the quiet girl on the Texas Twisters, but she's a force to be reckoned with where it counts-on the vault and in her heart. With freshman year on the horizon, Jesse decides that it's time to stop hiding in the shadow of her teammates and do the last thing anyone expects: join the cheerleading squad. Jessie proves that her gymnastic skills make her a perfect fit for the team, and becoming friends with the team captain makes Jessie feel like people care about her, and not just her talent.
But with cheer practice suddenly taking up all of her spare time, Jessie barely gets the chance to see her fellow gymnasts. Can Jessie bridge the gap between her new teammates and old friends? Or will she have to pick between being a cheerleader and being a gymnast?
