Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Yumiko Bendlin
Right from the first page, this book will captivate you with the competitive air at the 1997 World Figure Skating Championship. The excitement builds in the first chapter and it will put you where Michelle and Tara were at that moment. Through this biography of the two most popular and successful skaters in the U.S., we are immersed in this competitive sport. People tend to think of figure skating as a graceful and beautiful sport. But behind the gracefulness, there needs to be an extremely strong mental and physical ability to compete. From the time when they first started skating, to their rise to the top of the world of figure skating, you will share their struggles, victories, fame and most of all, their love of skating. It is also an informative book about the sport, with a glossary in the back. This is not only for Michelle and Tara fans, but also for future figure skating champions and anyone who just likes to watch the sport.
