Winning Balance is non-fiction and it is about an olympic gold medalist's life. For those of you who don't know Shawn Johnson, she is a professional gymnast who has been through a lot in only a few years. This book is good for any teenager or older. It helps show you what is truly important in life and it tells you about someone's life who is completely different than 99% of the world's. I truly recommend this book for anyone who is looking for a good read.
