Mikayla is thrilled when she is asked to try out for the position of school pentathlete. She knows the person chosen will be good at five different sports, including the high jump.
The trouble is, Mikayla’s high jump is weak. Just thinking about it makes her nervous. On top of that, she must compete against Amelie, a grade eight student who is last-year’s high jump gold medalist. Even Mikayla doesn’t think she deserves to win. Anyone can see that Amelie is a better athlete.
Author Cynthia Bates explores the link between self-confidence and success in this appealing new novel for young sports enthusiasts.
