Summary, etc.:
"For Sera Wheeler, the Olympics is the reason for everything. It's why she trains thirty hours a week, starves herself to under 100 pounds, and pops Advil like Tic Tacs. For her mother, Charlene, hungry for glory she never had, it's why she rises before dawn to drive Sera to practice in a different state, and why the family scrimps, saves, and fractures. They're why when Sera's best friends reports the gymnastics doctor to the authority who selects the Olympic team, Sera denies what she knows about his treatments, thus preserving favor. Their friendship shatters. But Sera protected her dream-- didn't she? Sera doubles down, taping broken toes, numbing torn muscles, and siphoning her family's resources. Soon she isn't training for the love of gymnastics; she's training to make her disloyalty worthwhile, no matter the cost."--Provided by publisher.
