JoJo's Flying Sidekick

Paperback (Aladdin Nov. 1, 1998) , Reprint edition
A young girl must face her fears and conquer her nerves to earn her yellow belt in Tae Kwon Do.

When Master Kim announces JoJo is ready to take the test for her yellow belt, butterflies start fluttering in her stomach. JoJo loves Tae Kwon Do, but can she really do a perfect flying side kick and break a board in two? Her family and friends offer all sorts of advice: “Do a little shuffle to chase the jitters away,” says Grandaddy. “Yell ‘KIAH!’ at the top of your lungs,” P.J. advises. “Why don’t you visualize your technique?” Mom suggests.

But how can JoJo ever hope to succeed when she’s still afraid of the creepy bandit tree outside her bedroom window? JoJo needs to find a way to turn her fears into success, and she soon realizes there’s only one person who can help her do that—herself.
