Synopsis

Going for Gold by Kay Woodward

Capturing the glamour, heartache and triumphs of Olympic figure-skating, this stunning new series whisks readers off to - quite literally - the coolest boarding school on earth. Frankie's made it to the Olympics and she's going for gold. It's a dream come true. Frankie and her team mates enjoy the buzz and excitement of the opening ceremony, but all too quickly Frankie realizes that the competition is going to be fierce. And there's one competitor who will stop at nothing to win - even if that means making false accusations about Frankie about a stolen lucky mascot. The pressure is on. Frankie could leave the competition empty-handed and with her reputation in tatters unless she clears her name. Can she keep a cool head and then skate to perfection when it matters most? A gripping new boarding school series with added ice, Skate School combines ambition, competition, friendship and fun. This compulsively cool read is sure to inspire budding sports stars everywhere - just in time for the Winter Olympics!
