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.

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.
