A few weeks ago, I got something awesome in the mail: Joss's book series! Today, the books finally released to the public, so here's my second post about Joss. This post is about Joss: Touch the Sky, and also contains my review of the series!
SPOILERS START HERE!
First, it's time to recap Touch the Sky:
For reference, here's the summary (Even though it didn't do the book justice): "Joss Kendrick is always looking for new ways to soar. So when her cheer team needs a new flyer, she can't wait to step up (literally). Her high-flying skills on her surfboard and skateboard make her a natural for the role. But when her skateboarding act at the talent show turns into a total catastrophe--make that a dog-tastrophe--Joss loses her confidence all around, even at the cheer gym. A big cheer competition is coming up fast, though, and her team is depending on her to nail a tricky stunt. If only Joss could trust them not to drop her. She wants to do an easier stunt, but if she plays it safe, can her team still win? And if they don't, will her team ever forgive her?"
The book begins with Joss's cheer team at Shine Athletics performing for their families. After the performance, Joss is satisfied, but Reina, a senior cheerleader who's also Joss's brother's girlfriend, tells the girls that there's a SoCal Cheerleading competition coming up in October, and Shine Athletics hasn't won the competition since she was Joss's age. Joss then becomes determined that her team will win the competition.
