A high-energy romance in verse about a fifth-grader who does gymnastics almost as much as she hides her poor reading skills. What happens when Claire’s secret begins to unravel?

Claire is by far the best gymnast on her team and is well on her way to qualifying for the state championships. The gym is where Claire shines. But at school she is known as a troublemaker. She seems to spend more time in the office than in class, which is fine with her because it allows her to hide the fact that she can’t read. She could never understand the wobbly jumble of letters on the page. No one but her BFF knows.

But when the sympathetic principal wonders if Claire is acting the way she is because she has dyslexia, her mother refuses. She fears that Claire will be labeled “stupid” and refuses to be tested. Claire always thought she was dumb; she never thought her reading problem could have a solution. Is she strong enough to handle both her reading problems and her mother’s denial? Should she jeopardize her place in the qualification?

Told in clear and poignant verse and illustrated in black and white, Claire’s struggle with something that seems easy to everyone else will resonate with readers and make them want to cheer her on.
