Description

In this official autobiography from four-time Olympic gold-winning and record-setting American gymnast Simone Biles, Simone shares how her faith, family, passion, and perseverance against tremendous odds helped make her one of the top athletes and record-breaking gymnasts in the world - now with 25 world championship medals.

Simone Biles' entrance into the world of gymnastics may have started on a day-care field trip in her hometown of Spring, Texas, but her God-given talent, along with her drive to succeed no matter the obstacle, are what brought her to the national spotlight during the Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro and have catapulted her ever since - including becoming the first gymnast in competition to land a double-twisting somersault on beam and the first woman to land a triple double on floor.

But there is more to Simone than the medals - 19 of them world championship gold. Through years of hard work and determination, she has relied on her faith and family to stay focused and positive, while having fun competing at the highest level and doing what she loves. Here, in her own words, Simone takes you through the events, challenges, and trials that carried her from an early childhood in foster care to a coveted spot on the US Olympic team. 

Along the way, Simone shares the details of her inspiring personal story - one filled with the kinds of daily acts of courage that led her, and can lead you, to even the most unlikely of dreams.

Cute story. Better suited for teens & young adult

The narrators depictions of characters, other than Simone, all sounded the same. There was a strange accent of some sort being used which was rather annoying.

The overall story was very nice. Interesting to see her journey. Since gymnastics was her life and she is rather young I found the story missing live experiences relatable to an older audience. This book is great for younger audience trying to find themselves through adolescent into going adulthood. Overall I find it an easy listen.

A little thin

Would you try another book from Simone Biles and/or Imani Parks?

While you can tell the enthusiasm put into his book by the author was incredible, the story at felt thin at times. Significant life events did impact the author and her story is interesting but the book lacks alot of substance and at times, the writing Seems like a space filler. Example: So then my neighbor made a fort and I said", I like your fort". And she said, "OK". There are numerous paragraphs similar to this throughout the book which I tried to be forgiving about, but eventually I just couldn't let them go. Maybe there wasn't really a full book to be made from the story. Overall not bad but i was left waiting to finish so i could move on to my next book.

Terrible narrating

Loved the content, but found the narrating really distracting - particularly each time the narrator pretended to speak like Marta.

wings of an eagke

I have always loved to watch gymnastics but Simone has taken my love of the sport to another level. Well done Simone. Can't wait to see you in 2020. Wish I could realise my dream to watch you in live and living colour.
