Shawn Johnson Publishing First YA Novel!


The Flip Side cover

What else can you add to your list of accomplishments after you have an Olympic gold medal, you’re a Nike athlete and you’ve starred on the “Celebrity Apprentice” and “Dancing With The Stars”? For Shawn Johnson, the answer is young adult author.

The gymnast recently signed a book deal with Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, an imprint of Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing, for her first YA novel.

The book, slated to come out in June before the Rio Olympics, is reportedly about a high school student who hopes to become a gymnast. The title? “The Flip Side,” of course.
