Reviews

2017 ILA-CBC Children's Choice List

"Karlin Gray did an amazing job with this book."--Nadia Comaneci

"Sprightly watercolor illustrations are both strong and springy, capturing Nadia's literal and metaphorical ups and downs as she works hard, fails, and picks herself up."
--Booklist

"As a sports biography, and a story of a positive female role model, this book is a perfect 10 for any library!"
--School Library Connection

"Based on the popularity of gymnastics in the United States and this year's upcoming summer Olympics, this book will find a ready audience."
--School Library Journal

"The jaunty narrative takes readers from Comaneci's childhood through her first Olympics with lively illustrations in ink, watercolor, and pencil."
--Publishers Weekly

"Poised for the 2016 Summer Games, this pays a respectful, 40th-anniversary tribute to Comaneci's soaring achievements."
--Kirkus
