Description

Figure skating is Kaitlin's passion, but she lands on thin ice after a meltdown in this funny, touching story. Because when you fall down, you have to pick yourself up--even if it's in front of judges and a crowd.

Kaitlin has always dreamed of being a champion figure skater, and she's given up a lot to pursue her passion. But after she has a totally uncharacteristic tantrum at a major competition, she's dropped by her coach and her prestigious skating club.

When no other club will have her, she's forced to join the ridiculed and run-down Fallton Club, jokingly referred to as the "Fall Down Club." At first Kaitlin thinks this is a complete disaster, but after meeting some of the other skaters--including a boy who happens to have the most perfect hair she's ever seen--she realizes it might not actually be so bad.

Yet learning a whole new program right before regionals is a huge challenge, and when she realizes that all the other area skaters target Fallton for pranks, she begins to wonder if joining the Fall Down Club has any upsides.
