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.

I liked the story, but the writing of it wasn’t very technical or creative. It used a lot of “very”’s and “really”’s to describe things, and the reading was a little cheesy at times. Overall it was decent.
