Strive for Excellence (Book #2 in Perfect Balance Optionals)
The start of sixth grade is a big deal. Marissa’s first day of middle school is also her first day training with the Level 6 optionals team at Perfect Balance Gymnastics Academy. Marissa knows she is smart and a hard worker; she expects to get straight A’s in school and have a successful competition season this winter.
However, middle school is proving to be difficult. Marissa is having a hard time keeping track of six classes and staying organized. It seems like she is the only one who can’t manage her schoolwork. Thankfully, she has gymnastics, her happy place where she is feeling successful. But her coaches are leaving some big decisions about her routines up to her and she’s not sure what to do.
Marissa’s entire identity is that she is smart and consistent in meets. What happens if she is neither this year?
This book is written at a 7th grade reading level and appeals to 11-14-year-olds. Like all of the Perfect Balance Gymnastics Books, it promotes grace and confidence!
