    Gold by Chris Cleave

    Previous hit: The author of top-selling Little Bee delivers a perfectly timed Olympic novel. Plot notes: Professional cyclists Zoe and Kate have spent a lifetime teetering on the line of friendship and a competitive rivalry, but everything is at stake when gunning for gold. Juggling act: Cleave combines the familiar—squabbles with friends, struggling to maintain a work-life balance—with the world of pro sports.
