Perfect for your tween daughter.
22 February 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This movie is adorable. It has your traditional tween growing up and finding yourself story but it is also really entertaining.

Everything always seems so much bigger than it really is in school and that is something that will never change. For McKenna her life is all about gymnastics and making the nationals then one day the Olympics. She learns life can be difficult juggling her passion with school and friendships but in true form she finds out what life is really about.

This movie may not be deep or intellectual but it doesn't need to be. It's the perfect light- hearted finding the true you story. It shows that you can have it all if you work hard from the beginning and follow your dreams. And isn't that what all kids need, someone backing them to be the best version of themselves and teaching them that you only fail if you never try.
