"Gold Medal Summer more successfully reflects the competitive gymnast's spunk, thanks to Donna Freitas's flashier style and relatable protagonist, 13-year-old Joey Jordan." —The New York Times Book Review
"A sports story that handsprings away from romance and toward a commendable joy in accomplishment." —Kirkus
"Freitas is a former competitive gymnast, and her descriptions of routines are taut and eye-opening. Although the hardships of the sport are not underplayed, this is a largely positive novel about hard work and self-confidence." —School Library Journal
