    1. McKena, Ready to Fly by Mary Casanova is a continuation to the book McKenna about a gymnast who broke her ankle during a gymnastics showcase two months before competitive team tryouts McKenna had been struggling in school so Mr.With brought her a tutor who McKenna is continuing to do well with, her grades are also really good with all the time to focus on school because she is not doing gymnastics while injured Also her friends found out that she was lying to them about extra practice and they f [...]

    2. My only real problem with the McKenna books is that one of the big plot points involves McKenna s friend, Toulane, being rather snitty towards McKenna Instead of ever talking to Toulane whom I assumed was her friend outside of gymnastics McKenna just sort of wonders idly why Toulane might be upset with her when she shows interest in other things usually after observing Toulane s incredibly overbearing mother be incredibly overbearing P Also, McKenna never seems to hang out with her friends outsi [...]

    3. i think mckenna ready to fly was also a good book i liked the first book a little better though mckenna became really good friends with her turor, josie josie is not able to walk and is only able to get around in a wheelchair mckenna helps Josie a lot and josie has always wanted to go horseback riding but with her disibility, Josie thinks its inpossible Mckenna is very optimistic and helped josie become confident and decided to try riding a horse josie ended up doing pretty well on the horse al [...]

    4. The books were vwry good I would recommend them to everyone.The only thing that upset me was the book and movie had some different things and deletwd amd added things.

    5. This is a review of both books in the McKenna series.American Girl s Girl of the Year 2012 is McKenna Brooks In addition to a doll, which can be purchased on the American Girl website, there are also two books about this character McKenna and McKenna, Ready to Fly Both books are set in Seattle, Washington, and their storylines revolve around McKenna s struggles balancing her strong interest in gymnastics with the rest of her life, including friendships, family, and school.In McKenna, McKenna s f [...]

    6. McKenna is so excited to finally be getting her cast off on Friday, but then Josie reveals that she plans to conquer her fear of horseback riding on Friday and McKenna volunteers to go with Josie That means pushing back her doctor s appointment which makes Toulane even grouchy than usual McKenna loves the therapeutic riding center where Josie learns to ride McKenna discovers that her gymnastics training and friendship with Josie have given her the best attitude for helping people with disabilit [...]

    7. I think the book McKenna, Ready to Fly is a good book for anyone The book is about a girl named McKenna a 4th grader who loves gymnastics, but when one day she brakes her leg from doing a flip at a competition When she gets a cast on her leg she is sacred that she will never be able to do gymnastics any When she meets a girl named Jocie all her hopes come again and she has made one of her closest friends The one thing is that Jocie is in a wheelchair permanently McKenna helps her through these h [...]

    8. This was a great book because it was very descriptive and based on a great story It s a simple read with not too hard vocabulary I recomend this book to 4th and 5th grade girls This book is about a girl named Makenna, who is an amazing gymnast who has great friends but she thinks there friendship is slowly ending and is trying to fix it Meanwhile she fell behind in school and now has a toutor but her toutor is also her best friend, now her toutor is going to a horse back riding place and Makenna [...]

    9. I didn t fall head over heals with McKenna like I did with Mia There were times when the narrative seemed spot on and other times, mostly in the dialogue, where the kids sounded very inauthentic Also, while I appreciate that McKenna has a friend in a wheelchair and feel that disabilities were handled carefully, respectfully and tactfully in the novel, it seemed like the numerous references to Josie being in a wheelchair and being disabled made her a bit of a token.

    10. It is a few days until McKenna gets her cats off She is so excited When Josie, McKenna s tutor is going on horseback, she changes her appointment to get her cast off to Monday McKenna is very nervous about the gymnastics tournament She is afraid that she won t make it to the team This book is so good It comes right after the book where McKenna breaks her ankle You she read that book and then this one because they both are so good.

    11. A book that teaches the value of friendship, hard work, and compassion is a big winner in our house McKenna works hard to get back to her dream of being on the competitive team while learning to balance friendships and school work too She use her gifts to help others and finds value in teamwork and friendship.

    12. After all of McKenna s struggles in the previous book and everything she learns, I must admit I was pretty psyched to read this one I don t think this one was as good, though Somehow in this book, all the problems seem like really not that big a deal, and McKenna overcomes them with way too much grace and wisdom It all seems too easy Still a fun book, though.

    13. this book is so inspiring if you think your life is hard, this book will make you think again mckenna made me realize that i m not the only one struggling with life s grasps.i m along side many others that look as cool as me but instead on the inside we re all just nervous,tired,desperate people and we re not alone.

    14. I like how this story shifts onto Josie as she decides to try horsebackriding Seeing McKenna come through for her friend is heartwarming and made her a lot likable I was sorry that the series ended here.

    15. I like the book I like that McKenna wants to go with Josie to Hearts and Horses I like when she goes there when ever she can I like that she makes the competitive team and still goes to Hearts and Horses.

    16. An American Girl gymnast must overcome an ankle injury, fear relating to physically challenged children, anxiety over gymnastic tryouts, and emotional separation from a friend She does all this with grace and helps others to do the same.

    17. It was an awesome book I think the challenges McKenna faces are extremely realistic and I think I can relate This book is geared toward 9 to 10 year old girls.

    18. I loved this book I Could not wait to see what would happen next I was so sad it was all over I would def recommend this book to friends.

    19. I have many American girl dolls including McKenna and I hope this book is good I look forward to reading it
