Katie and Eric Knox have dedicated their lives to their fifteen-year-old daughter Devon, a gymnastics prodigy and Olympic hopeful. But when a violent death rocks their close-knit gymnastics community just weeks before an all-important competition, everything the Knoxes have worked so hard for feels suddenly at risk. As rumors swirl among the other parents, revealing hidden plots and allegiances, Katie tries frantically to hold her family together while also finding herself drawn, irresistibly, to the crime itself, and the dark corners it threatens to illuminate.
I really enjoyed what this novel delivered. A thriller, in a gymnastics setting, was the perfect set up. These girls dedicate their entire lives, and the lives of their families, to this grueling sport. So it comes down to, what are you willing to do for yourself, or your daughter to make all the sacrifices worth it. The writing was well done and I felt that it portrayed the teenage gymnasts perfectly. While I wouldn't label this a "whodunit" thriller, I was very interested to see where it would go and how it got there. I think this book really created a great scenario and took it all the way to the end in a believable way. I will be checking out other titles by this author soon!
