Nana Rocks!
Inspiring!

This movie is my seven-year-old granddaughter's favorite movie. Gabby Douglas is her favorite gymnast. I'm told she admires Gabby's difficult Olympic vaults. It's a true story of struggle, hardship and victory. We both cried at times and cheered at times. What an inspiring true story.

I like this story because it speaks about how Gabby came from a struggling family. How her mother sacrificed a lot for her daughter to achieve her goals. Its a beautiful story and heart warming story.
