Michelle Kwan

by Sam Wellman

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Patricia Timbrook
Wellman successfully combines Kwan's background and personality with the technical details of medal quality figure skating to make a readable 64 pages. Kwan's is a success story of a plucky, highly motivated Chinese-American girl from a Cantonese family with a skating older sister and very supportive parents. In light of today's concern for the sexual safety of children, however, I do question Wellman's choice of "skirt-up" poses to illustrate the performances of this young teenager. This book provides a competent addition to the "Female Figure Skating Legends" series.
