Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-This book focuses on the gymnast's career under coach Bela Karolyi more than on her personal life (though her strenuous schedule does not allow for much of a personal life) and draws heavily on her autobiography (Bantam, 1996). Durrett provides details of her subject's early childhood and includes her recent "split" from her parents. The author reveals a family devoted (in the strongest sense) to Dominique's career. As former gymnasts themselves, the girl's parents, "...made a commitment to each other that their first born child would be an athlete, a gymnast...." Family lore recounts that before Dominique could walk, her parents placed her fists around a clothesline and let her hang on until she fell (they stood by to catch her). Dark and poorly reproduced black-and-white photos show Dominique, Karolyi, and other Olympic gymnasts, yet pictures of the athlete's family are notably absent. Some pictures seem out of place, such as the one of Karolyi in the first chapter when Dominique trains under LaFleur. Those interested in gymnastics will enjoy the detailed account of competitions, routines, scoring, etc., and may glean an appreciation for what it takes to become an Olympic champion.-Laura Glaser, Euless Junior High School, TX Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

    All Gymnasts Need to READ IT!

    I checked this book out of the public library, and this was one of the best biographies I have ever read about Dominique. It was easy to understand, had a nice detail of her life, and had a ton of pictures. It also told about what happpened to Dominique AFTER the 1996 Olympics! I throughly enjoyed reading this!
