You will know me 

I was instantly drawn to this book based off its description which talks about a young prodigal gymnast and her family going to extreme measures to make her successful. Anything in the youth sports realm always draws me in and I hope for a great and accurate story, since it’s a world I know all too well. 

The book didn’t go in the direction I thought it would and focused much less on the drama of the sport and more so the drama of the family. I liked the book and finished it in a day, but I didn’t like the ending and was hoping for more of a tie in to the pressures of sports on kids- but could see how this would be a great read for sports parents dealing with the multi level pressure of work, family, sport balance- especially when you have a superstar athlete. 

Worth a read, but not in love with it.
