Gold by Chris Cleave - Cleave's latest follows two women who are not only friends but rivals, as they've trained as cyclists together since they were 19. Now 32, one woman balances her desire to win the gold at the 2012 Olympics in London with her daughter's battle against cancer as her friend and training partner weighs how important the gold medal is over their friendship. ~ 3 stars, loved the little girl's battle but too much melodrama and way too contrived
