A fun girls' series...

Eleven-year-old Lauren's not too sure about returning to gymnastics. She hasn't taken lessons in years, and doesn't think she was even that good to begin with. But her best friend Cindi's signed up, and Lauren's used to doing everything together, so... Once she arrives, Lauren discovers there are other girls just like her. Eleven-year-old Jodi - the daughter of the new assistant coach - comes from a family of great gymnasts, but is a little lacking herself. With 13-year-old Darlene, the daughter of a famous football player, she and Cindi make up the Pinecones, Evergreen Academy's newest group of gymnasts. Together, the girls cheer one another on...even as Becky, an older, more elite gymnast does everything in her power to sabotage them... Growing up, I loved "The Gymnasts" so much, I begged my mother to sign me up for gymnastics lessons too! If you haven't given the series a try, please do!

The Gymnasts: The Beginners

"Lauren, you know that `can't' is a four letter word we don't use here", said Patrick the head coach of Evergreen Gymnastics Academy and he is teaching his new team The Pinecones how to do a handstand vault. Lauren is the smallest girl on her team but as her coach said, "the one with the most potential". Becky is a few years older than the Pinecones but is much younger in attitude. It's war between Becky and the Pinecones; there is the dust bunny battle, the laughing battle, ECT. This is a truly funny first book of a series that I would recommend to all girls. I hope I can read the entire series till the series ends.


Lauren used to take gymnastics but quit. Her friend Cindi got her to go agian. At first, she think's out of the whole group, she is the "beginner." She does very good. All of a sudden, a meet is comming and she is not sure. Will she do good? Read this wonderful book and find out!
