Publisher's Summary

Gold medal-winning Olympic gymnast and Dancing with the Stars favorite Laurie Hernandez shares her story in her own words in this debut book for fans of all ages!

At 16 years old, Laurie Hernandez has already made many of her dreams come true - yet it's only the beginning for this highly accomplished athlete. A Latina Jersey girl, Laurie saw her life take a dramatic turn last summer when she was chosen to be a part of the 2016 US Olympic gymnastics team. After winning gold in Rio as part of the Final Five, Laurie also earned an individual silver medal for her performance on the balance beam. Nicknamed "the Human Emoji" for her wide-eyed and animated expressions, Laurie continues to dance her way into everyone's hearts while competing on the hit reality TV show Dancing with the Stars.

Poignant and funny, Laurie's story is about growing up with the dream of becoming an Olympian and what it took to win gold. She talks about her loving family, her rigorous training, her intense sacrifices, and her amazing triumphs. Be prepared to fall in love with and be mesmerized by America's newest sweetheart all over again.

    "Good Story Overall - bad editing"

    The overall story was good. How very I found it very superficial and redundant.

    I listened to this one after listening to the Simone Biles audiobook and I was a bit disappointed with this one.

    It may be that Laurie just didn't have the hurdles that Simone had. However, I think it's more that whoever was writing it did not dig deeper into those hurdles and her overall success.
