What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Twelve-year-old Sofia Martinez is the best gymnast at Riverside Gymnastics Center, but when a fall from the balance beam (usually her best event) results in a concussion, she finds herself afraid of the beam, and equally afraid to tell anyone about her fear of falling–Sofia needs help before her trauma drives her away from gymnastics forever.

Who Wrote Balance Beam Boss

author
Jake Maddox

Who is Jake Maddox? Athlete, author, world-traveler - or all three? He has surfed in Hawaii, scuba-dived in Australia, and climbed the mountains of Peru and Alaska. His books range from the most popular team sports to outdoor activities to survival adventures and even to auto racing. His exploits have inspired numerous writers to walk in his footsteps - literally! Each of his stories is stamped with teamwork, fair play, and a strong sense of self-worth and discipline. Always a team-player, Maddox realizes it takes more than one man (or woman) to create a book good enough for a young reader. He hopes the lessons learned on the court, field, or arena and the champion sprinter pace of his books can motivate kids to become better athletes and lifelong readers.
