Book review on Break The Fall by Jennifer Iacopelli


Audrey Lee is going to the Olympics.

A year ago, she could barely do a push up as she recovered from a spine surgery, one that could have paralyzed her. And now? She’s made the United States’ gymnastics team with her best friend, Emma, just like they both dreamed about since they were kids. She’s on top of the world.

The pressure for perfection is higher than ever when horrifying news rips the team apart. Audrey is desperate to advocate for her teammate who has been hurt by the one person they trusted most–but not all the gymnasts are as supportive.

With the team on the verge of collapse, the one bright spot in training is Leo, her new coach’s ridiculously cute son. And while Audrey probably (okay, definitely) shouldn’t date him until after the games, would it really be the end of the world?

Balancing the tenuous relationship between her teammates with unparalleled expectations, Audrey doesn’t need any more distractions. No matter what it takes, she’s not going to let anyone bring them down. But with painful revelations, incredible odds, and the very real possibility of falling at every turn, will Audrey’s determination be enough?

My rating: 5/5


Firstly, in my opinion, the cover is really creative and amazing like the story! This book was just a very great read.

Secondly, the writing was such an inspiring read and I could not put the book down! There were so many good message contained in it!

Thirdly, I feel that it is a unique book with regards to sports fiction which is a rare genre being written for young adult! I used to take gymnastic when I was younger and it is not an easy sport! It was incredible to read about their daily routines and how the competitions are held!

Lastly, the most important part written in it is with regards of sexual abuse occuring in gymnastic sports. It gave readers hope that us humans are strong to overcome the things that hurt us!

Overall, it was such an inspiring read. I highly recommend this book, if you like read books that gives you inspiration and a good read.

Thank you so much #Pansing @definitelybooks, for sending me this book!

This book is available at all good bookstores!
