Well-written, engaging, colorful, bounces along -- like a gymnastics performance! Meyer skillfully intertwines growing up Orthodox in a single-parent home and being passionate about her sport. She deftly explains all three to us "civilians". *kol haKavód* כל הכבוד!

I do wish there were a way to award 4.5 stars, because despite Meyer's praise for her editor, there were typos and sentences that could've read more smoothly. Meyer, I'll gladly edit your next book [I'm a professional editor]!

A clever and very funny meditation on the vicissitudes of gymnastics and life, this book offers a series of vignettes on the author's lifelong passion for the practice and spectatorship of the sport.

A fun read even while relating to serious topics and olympic mishaps.

Dvora's keen sense of humor will keep you laughing, reading, and rooting for her.

Back in the day, I was something of a gymnast. So when I came across this title, I figured I'd give it a shot based on the sport parallel alone. This is a fantastic read! Dvora, you had me laughing from beginning to end. There were a few times there out in public, I had to put the tablet away less those nearby thought me crazy!

I hope this is not the only book this very talented woman writes. She has a distinctive voice unlike any other so there hopefully will be more...

Excellent!

As a fellow obsessive child (my obsession was horses, I gave up gymnastics by 1st grade and dance by 4th), I identified with this so much. A great story, and I found myself switching back and forth to YouTube to watch the routines mentioned. I would love to read more!

I have read many, many gymnastics memoirs in my lifetime. Mary Lou, Bela, Miller, Moceanu. As interesting as it may be to read about an elite athlete's day to day training, how many of us un-elite non-athletes can relate? Not many.

Enter Dvora Meyers.

The first words that came to mind were "Spirit Animal." I felt as though this was a book I myself had written, but had no recollection of doing so. She basically replayed my experience as a young child who had become obsessed with elite gymnastics.

If you ever wore out a taped gymnastics competition or ever flipped your remote control pretending it was Shannon Miller, then this is the book for you.
