I am such a big fan of Shawn Johnson. I have not read this book yet, but I am pretty confident about it. I wanted it for my birthday and was pretty sad that it was not there. :) I hope you enjoy!

- Inspiring! by Tammy on 7/23/2012
In lue of the upcoming Olympics, I recently read "Winning Balance", the story of Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson. In this book, Shawn shares her story about her quest for the gold in gymnastics. Through her journey she learned about life, disappointment, and faith. This book is a great read and helps put everything into perspective. As a teenager, Shawn has done and seen more than some of us see in a lifetime! Very inspiring.
