Gabby's story is really inspirational, and one that I would encourage people to read. She overcame so much; a rare disorder, bullying, and an absent father. It is easy to see when reading that her faith is really important to her!
It's cool to read about Gabby as a normal kid, as well as learn about her road to the Olympics. At one point, Gabby talks about how she and her friend loved the show H2O: Just Add Water, which I thought was awesome because my sister and I used to watch that show all the time!
The one thing I didn't like was that there were one or two 'lols'. I don't exactly love it when people put text talk in a book; save it for your phones! That is the only thing that really annoyed me about this book. Other than that, I thought it was a wonderful, inspirational book. If you loved the olympics, and especially if you love gymnastics, Gabby Douglas' autobiography is an absolute must-read!
