Love Cathy Cassidy or Jacqueline Wilson? Don't miss this gorgeous new series set in the heady world of gymnastics. Ellie has a dream ...to become a world-class gymnast. When she's offered a place at the prestigious London Gymnastics Academy, it looks like she has a chance to make that dream come true. But there are many obstacles to overcome, new friends to make, and rivalries to face! Will she make it, against all the odds? Making the Grade is the first book in the Somersaults and Dreams series, a rollercoaster ride full of friendship, rivalries, setbacks and triumphs, with echoes of classic stories like Ballet Shoes.
'[Somersaults and Dreams] really captures a dream that so many young girls have and it reminds me of the early stages of my career. It's inspiring ...and I will definitely be telling the girls at my gym to go and read it!' -- Lynne Hutchinson, GB Rhythmic Olympic and Commonwealth Gymnast
Cate Shearwater lives in Wiltshire with her husband and two children. She was gloriously bad at gymnastics when she was younger but luckily the cartwheels skipped a generation and Somersaults and Dreams was written for Cate's gymnastic fantastic daughter, Elsie, and all her fabulous squad mates at Baskerville's Gym Club.
