About The Book

Full of unforgettable upsets, miraculous comebacks, and tales of incredible drive and commitment, the 40 profiles in GIRL ATHLETE celebrate the game-changing women and girls who have broken records on and off the court. 

Soccer. Check! Basketball. Check! Gymnastics, downhill skiing, volleyball, figure skating, tennis. Check! This action-packed illustrated collection of profiles shines a spotlight on 40 outstanding female athletes in fields from baseball to rock climbing who have broken records, redefined their sport, and shown incredible sportsmanship and feats of endurance. Celebrate the strength, commitment, and skill of icons like Serena Williams and Nadia Comaneci, powerhouses like Wilma Rudolph and Lindsey Vonn, and recent headliners like Simone Biles and Megan Rapinoe. Young athletes and sports fans will love the inspiring stories in the book and will walk away with winning wisdom from the MVPs about staying mentally and physically fit, making the most of their training, getting their head in the game, ignoring the naysayers, exhibiting good sportsmanship (even when things go terribly wrong), and pushing themselves to surpass their goals and find their personal best.
