Rising Above: Inspiring Women in Sports

We rated this book:


If you are looking for stories about inspiring women, then this is the book for you! This book is filled with the personal stories of women from all different sports and their stories about overcoming any obstacles in their way. One of the most interesting things about this book is that each athlete had to keep trying even when there was a problem or something didn’t go their way. Some of the stories were about how the girls had to overcome poverty and hard childhoods. Some of the girls had to overcome physical challenges, whether it was a sickness that caused a problem, being born prematurely, or having an accident that caused their life to change. No matter what challenge they faced, each of these athletes was able to become one of the best in their sport.

Some of these athletes are very well known, and it was interesting to see how they grew up and how they started in each of their sports. It is important to show young women that no matter what is going on in their life, if they want to accomplish something they must stay determined and work hard and not let anyone discourage them.
