Book review: The Flyaway Girls


The Flyaway Girls

Matilda borrowed this book from her local library.

The Flyaway Girls by Julia Lawrinson, Puffin Books, ISBN 9780143308652

The Flyaway Girls is a novel about a girl called Chelsea who is really serious about gymnastics. She starts getting her hopes up about getting into the nationals competition as she gets better and better. But then a new girl comes and is catching up to her quickly, except for one thing holding her back — the vault. The badge ceremony is drawing closer and closer. Will the new girl stop Chelsea getting into the nationals?

I recommend this book for ages 8+ or serious gymnasts like Chelsea. I really enjoyed this book though, and I’m not a gymnast.
