Fierce: How Competing for Myself Changed Everything

(3) YA With Blythe Lawrence. Olympic medal–winning gymnast Raisman recounts her journey from tumbling toddler to extraordinary athlete in this conversational memoir. Raisman covers the grueling training, pressure to be perfect, and highs and lows of competition, and she sensitively discusses the sexual abuse from USA team doctor Larry Nassar. Hers is an empowering story, especially for girls in this era of #metoo. Includes an insert of color photos.
