Head Over Heels, by Hannah Orenstein

Maria is a book reviewer, editor, and proofreader, as well as a master of public health, master gardener, photographer, artist, and writer.


I was invited to read a free copy of Head Over Heels, by the author, Hannah Orenstein, in exchange for an honest review. I thoroughly enjoyed this delightfully funny romantic comedy, and learned a lot, both good and bad, about the competitive world of Olympic-level gymnastics. Thank you, Hannah, for trusting me with your work. I happily gave it four stars.
