Review: Tumbling by Caela Carter

Tumbling by Caela Carter
Grace lives and breathes gymnastics—but no matter how hard she pushes herself, she can never be perfect enough.
Leigh, Grace’s best friend, has it all: a gymnastics career, a normal high-school life…and a secret that could ruin everything.
Camille wants to please her mom, wants to please her boyfriend, and most of all, wants to walk away.
Wilhelmina was denied her Olympic dream four years ago, and she won’t let anything stop her again. No matter what
Monica is terrified. Nobody believes in her—and why should they?By the end of the two days of the U.S. Olympic Gymnastics Trials, some of these girls will be stars. Some will be going home with nothing. And all will have their lives changed forever.

Karen at For What It's Worth and Mary at The Book Swarm occasionally post twitter-style reviews. Karen calls hers Short and Tweet, and I am going to borrow that review style here.

My short and tweet review: 

     I wanted to read this one because I like gymnastics books and TV shows. I enjoyed it, liked that the characters had depth but my one complain was there were multiple (5) points of view, and at first it felt like it jumped around too much to get a handle on the character, but I was rewarded that I stuck with it. 

My question to you, my lovely readers:
Ever done gymnastics?
