Waiting On Wednesday 5/25/16 : The Flip Side by Shawn Johnson

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. It’s a weekly meme that allows bloggers to talk about what upcoming book they’re most looking forward to read!

The book I'm waiting on this week is The Flip Side by Shawn Johnson


The Flip Side

Charlie Ryland has a secret.

She may seem like your average high school sophomore—but she’s just really good at pretending.

Because outside of school Charlie spends all her waking hours training to become one of the best gymnasts in the world. And it’s not easy flying under the radar when you’re aiming for Olympic gold…especially when an irresistible guy comes along and threatens to throw your whole world off balance.

Inspired by her own experiences as a fifteen-year-old Olympic gymnast, gold medalist Shawn Johnson writes a delightfully entertaining novel about chasing big dreams and falling in love, all while trying to keep it real.

Why I'm Waiting
I've always had an interest in gymnastics and olympic sports in general. Plus Shawn was one of my favorite gymnasts back in 2008 and I'm interested to see how she is as a writer. I also think this will help me get into the Olympic spirit as this is an Olympic Year!

  • Format: Hardcover
  • Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers        
  • Page Count: 320
  • Expected Publication: June 7th 2016
