I was bored to be in this gym SO much, but there are life lessons here. One of them is dealing with annoying people who are in your sphere of influence. It's nice to get caught up in a book that was written before the internet, cells, tablets, etc. None of the kids were staring down into the gadgets with idiotic looks on their faces. The coach seems like he is a valuable recurring character, although this is the only book in the series that I've read. If anyone knows when the series began and ended, please comment on my review and tell me. This book was from the fall of 1989 and there are references to Jodi using her computer to get the party going.

ISBN 0590422219 - The Gymnasts series seems to me to be a vain attempt to follow in the footsteps of The Baby-Sitters Club series, with gymnastics rather than babysitting being the common bond between the girls. Not even close.

Jodi, who is a brat in her own right, has a problem with fellow brat and gymnast Becky. Becky thinks Jodi should be a better gymnast because she comes from a family of gymnasts. Jodi thinks Becky is a show-off because she IS a better gymnast. Both girls need an attitude adjustment and both girls are in the wrong throughout the book - but the "winner" will be the one who figures it out and doesn't let the other get to them anymore. As if that's not enough to have to do, Jodi's gotten herself a responsibility she's sure she can't handle. She opened her mouth to suggest a Halloween party and she's been put in charge of organizing it. Certain she'll mess it up, Becky bets her that she will - loser wears a bag on her head.

I was a little surprised to find the exclamation "Bull!" used by one of the girls, since we all know what that's short for. Other than that, pretty standard stuff. Still, the young girl who'd rather tumble than take care of younger kids might prefer it to the BSC.

I read this book when I was in elementary school and liked it a lot. I recently gave my copy to one of my younger cousins. The girls in a gymnastics class want to have a Halloween party. Jodi is interested in planning the party, but Becky (who is kind of a brat) points out that Jodi is always disorganized and says that she'll never be able to pull it off. Jodi is determined to make the party a success to prove Becky wrong. When something unexpected happens at the party, Jodi finds a way to prove to both herself and the other gymnasts that she can be cool-headed and can handle herself and the situation.
