Gym Stars: Book 1
Summertime and Somersaults
by Jane Lawes
Tara loves gym and spends every spare moment practising in her garden. When she joins the Silverdale Gym Club, Tara's catapulted into their star team. But with so many new things to learn- like backflips, somersaults and handsprings, how will Tara ever catch up with her talented teammates?
Jane Lawes studied American Literature and Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia and started a PCGE in primary education, before deciding that her real passion lay in books. She currently works in publishing by day, and as an author by night and at the weekends. Gym Stars: Summertime & Somersaults is Jane’s first novel.

Debut author Jane Lawes doesn’t put a step wrong in her first three Gym Stars books... Girls aged eight and over will love this fantastic series which is filled with fun, friendship and dreams of fame.
Lancashire Evening Post
Just in time for the 2012 Olympics, this is a super new series... Girls will readily identify with Tara and her friends and enjoy reading about her success. Hopefully, too, [these books] will inspire aspiring young gymnasts to persevere and others to take up the sport.
Parents in Touch
A new series of books that young, budding Beth Tweddles will love.
This cheering 10/10 had me in happy tears at several points.
