And if that?s not enough, Ivy?s best friend, Julie Albright, has moved to another part of San Francisco. The only place Ivy feels at home is at gymnastics. But this year the big gymnastics tournament is scheduled for the same day as the annual Ling family reunion. Ivy wrestles with a difficult choice. With her brother?s help, Ivy realizes that she can take charge of her own life - and make her own luck.

At first she was going to gymnastics class and her family party was on the same day. Her parents said that she had to come to the party but later said she could go to gymnastics. She won one trophy and two medals (I think). Read full review
