Pluck and Perfection

by Brandon Terrell
Illustrated by Iman Max

Rachel Young is a gymnast and a perfectionist. Unfortunately, her routines don't always measure up to her high-flying standards. Rachel soon comes face to face with real perfection when an old Sports Illustrated magazine transports her and her cousin, Nate, to the year 1976. There, the cousins get a chance to witness the gutsy Nadia Comaneci go for gold at the Montreal Olympics. Rachel soon learns that sometimes pluck is as important as perfection.

"With likable characters, short chapters, and a tale chock full of sports nostalgia, this series should attract sports fans and history buffs alike. Generously spaced text and abundant white space on the pages make for an easy read. Black and white illustrations enhance the story by putting faces to the main characters while the Glossary and Timeless Facts sections provide relevant, factual information pertaining to the historical events and people. Recommended." - School Library Connection
