A shot at Olympic gold in ski jumping. It’s a dream that has been the exclusive property of male athletes. Until now.
For seventeen-year-old Ellie Engebretsen, the 2011 decision to include women’s ski jumping in the Olympics is a game changer. She’d love to bring home the gold for her father, a former Olympic competitor whose dreams were blown along with his knees on an ill-timed landing. But can she defy the pull of gravity that draws her to Kate Moreau, her biggest competition and the girl of her dreams?
How can Ellie soar through the air when all she feels like doing is falling hard?
Ellie is a skilled ski jumper and has a shot at the Olympics. She has just had her heart broken by the girl she thought was the love of her life. Not only is this girl a fellow ski jumper but she is being trained by Ellie Dad.
Ellie just want to fix her broken her heart. In an attempt to do just that she has a one-night stand with a ski tourist (or so she thinks), Kate. When Kate leaves the next day she can’t stop thinking about her. Then when Ellie’s Dad is interviewing for an assistant in his sports show and who is her interviewing but the mysterious Kate.
I haven’t read any YA Lesfic before but this was a nice one to start with. It was very teenage romance and both protagonists seemed to be dealing with a little more than the normal amount of teenage angst. My only negative is that I think you need to be into sports as well as YA Lesfic to truly get into this book as it is as much about sport as it is about romance.
