Overview

Overview

Since the days of Barbara Ann Scott, the world has had a love affair with its female figure skaters. Every year, thousands of girls register in skating programs and spend long hours practicing at the ice rink. While some are there for the sheer pleasure of the sport, the majority are attempting to realize a fabled dream of celebrity and glamour - no matter that only a talented few will ever make it atop the national podium.

Theirs is a passion that figure skater Josée Chouinard lived first-hand as she climbed through the amateur ranks of competitive skating. This three-time Canadian national champion accelerated at the sport because she could perform difficult jumps and intricate footwork. Moreover, she was beautifully artistic. Along with good looks and a charming personality, she had what those in the know call, "the complete package." It should have won her a World Championship or Olympic medal. However, lack of confidence and a series of mishaps would stop her from attaining the ultimate reward.

Now a popular professional figure skater, Josée is emulated and admired by teenage girls involved in the sport. Whether addressing young skaters during Canadian Figure Skating Association (CFSA) seminars, or assisting top ranked coaches with their students, she is inundated with questions about her career. Looking to her for guidance, these skaters are eager to learn from Josée's experiences.

Written in Josée's voice, All That Glitters touches on all aspects of her life and reveals her own hard-learned lessons. Directed particularly to skaters, whether they be in the early stages or at a more advanced level, All That Glitters also appealsto all fans who may not skate but are followers of the sport.

Written in a light hearted and humourous manner, All That Glitters especially emphasizes the narrative will be the importance of high self-esteem and the need to think of oneself as a champion, whether the reader be a skater, or not. Although the book will be inspirational and educational, it will that would appeal to its primarily teenage audience.
