"For a juvenile biography, I thought this was a great book with an encouraging message for young readers. Hernandez praises the value of hard work, setting goals and maintaining positive relationships with friends and family. She writes about her gymnastics journey (culminating with her time in the Olympics and then traveling the country on a gymnastics tour) and time on the show, Dancing with the Stars. She also talks about her Puerto Rican heritage and encourages girls from a Latin American background to become involved in gymnastics. Laurie Hernandez is a great role model for young girls!" said.

" This was another one of those fabulous autobiography of olympic gymnasts! I've always loved Laurie and it's crazy how young she is for how amazing she is! " said.

"Loovveee this book! Got it for Christmas and am so glad I did:) I 100% LOVE the Olympics and Laurie Hernandez is my most FAVORITE gymnast!!! I felt like I was having a personal chat with Laurie while reading this book" said.

"I would recommend this book to a young person but it really was geared toward a teenager or possibly college age person not an adult.

That being said, considering she was probably still 16 when she wrote this it was pretty good. I liked hearing some of the behind the scenes of her career. I also appreciated all the hard work she put into her career as she overcame multiple injuries but kept working out the muscles she could while she was laid up.

I think this book could be a great inspiration to teenagers and especially to young Latinas.

" Laurie's personality definitely comes through in her book; there was a lot of warmth, bubbliness, positivity and enthusiasm in her storytelling. I enjoyed reading about her experiences at Rio and on DWTS. Overall, a quick and fun read. " said.

"Great bio from Laurie Hernandez about her journey to becoming part of "The Final Five" at the 2016 Rio Olympics (gold medalist). Hernandez has a warm, honest voice that middle grade readers will connect with instantly. Her message for young people - "You win whenever you commit to something, because you can't experience growth without even trying"- is a great life lesson to impart. Kids will love all the behind-the-scenes stories in this including Hernandez's visit with President Obama (who tried to do a split with the team!). Good companion read to Courage to Soar by Simone Biles." said.

"I LOVE Laurie Hernandez and LOVED watching her on Dancing With the Stars. This book was an absolutely warm, inspirational and amazing book. I read it in one sitting because I couldn’t put it down. Laurie is wise beyond her years. I felt like Laurie and I were chatting over a cup of coffee. Her humility, passion, and energetic spirit was definitely evident in this book. I loved how she included emojis before each chapter as a nod to her nickname as the Human Emoji. She provided the reader with so much love and inspiration. I absolutely adore her. This book is a must read! I cannot wait to witness what Laurie does in the future!" said.

"A very happy, positive, and quick read. Laurie faced her hardships (multiple injuries after she made junior elite) with a positive attitude and determination.

There are still several chapters post Olympics, mainly talking about the tour of champions and Dancing with the Stars.

Unlike Simone Biles, Laurie was actually part of TOPS, the USAG talent search, although the way the book is written it seems like her mom researched it more than her coach did. I find it very interesting that her coach had never had an elite gymnast before, but Laurie stayed with her the whole time.
