LESSON ONE: Playing it safe beats taking chances.

After an injury ends Savannah's dream of a college gymnastics scholarship,

she quits. Despite her parents' protests, she won't risk breaking her body--

and heart--again.

LESSON TWO: Catch your best friend when she falls--or regret it forever.

Rules are meant to be broken, according to Savannah's best friend, Cassie--

and it's more fun to break them together. But when Cassie attempts

suicide, Savannah's left wondering how well she really knows her.

LESSON THREE: Learning to leap forward, not knowing where you'll land is the hardest lesson of all.

Falling for Marcos wasn't part of the plan. Not only did he save Cassie's

life, he also believes Savannah can still achieve her dreams. Except Cassie

thinks Marcos and gymnastics will only break Savannah's heart.

As Savannah tumbles and twists through toxic friendships and crushing

parental expectations, she realizes you never know who will be there when

you fall.

Review quote

Debut author Gallagher's background as a gymnastics instructor comes through in a story that captures the guilt and insecurity that can plague unhealthy relationships, set against a backdrop of racism and anti-immigrant sentiments in Savannah's community. Although Cassie's suicide attempt is swept by with surprising speed, it's satisfying to follow Savannah as she finds her way.--Publishers Weekly
