We’ve had McKenna Brooks for several months now, and my daughter is still head over heels (gymnastics reference intentional) for her. Now that there’s a trailer for McKenna’s movie, there’ll be even more McKenna talk in my house!! I don’t mind because I love the messages sent throughout her story- being strong, focusing on our own strengths, being a good friend…
Meet McKenna Brooks™, a determined and confident young gymnast, in this all-new modern-day adventure. McKenna™ is on track to make the regional competitive gymnastics team but off-track in school, where she’s suddenly struggling to keep up. When her teacher suggests a tutor, she’s embarrassed and desperate to keep it a secret from her friends. Then a bad fall at the gym sidetracks her from her favorite sport. Will she recover in time to make the team? Can she succeed in school, too? McKenna™ needs to focus on her strengths to overcome her challenges – and, with the help of family and friends, find a way to believe in herself again.
