Show Notes

We are at the start of the 2022 Winter Olympics! What better way to kick off this special time of year than by covering a book about two Winter Olympic hopefuls?

Today I am chatting with author Sara Fujimura about her book Every Reason We Shouldn't.

 This heartwarming contemporary YA book, tells the story of sixteen year old figure skater Olivia Kennedy, who's Olympic dreams have been shattered, and new boy in town, Jonah Choi, an up and coming speed skater with Olympic dreams of his own.

This book will give you all the feels! It's filled with complicated family relationships, uplifting friendships, a sweet romance, and a look into life as an Olympic hopeful. Inspired by the story of real Olympian Apollo Ohno, this book does not disappoint!

So, pull up a chair and take a listen and Sara and I chat all about her fantastic book, the Olympics, Apollo Ohno, figure skating, and so much more!
