Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Have you ever had a dream that keeps tugging at your heart? And no matter how much time passes, the yearning never ceases? If you have, you'll find yourself in good company reading the story of Michelle Kwan and how she skated her way to the top. While it is less of an autobiography than it sounds, this professional skater shares meaningful experiences from her life to help inspire anyone with a dream. The format of the book is in two parts—first, ten winning qualities are highlighted, and second, Kwan describes what it takes to get serious about going for your dream. Teenagers might find themselves enamored by Kwan's strength and perseverance and hopefully, this determination will be contagious. Kwan remembers her audience as a good performer does and tactfully draws in her own teenage years and experiences, offering wisdom about topics like homework, eating habits and rest. The book is made interactive with fun little quizzes, exercises or thoughtful questions at the end of each chapter. Join the adrenaline rush as you read about Michelle Kwan's commitment to ice skating and along the way, perhaps you'll find yourself caught up in your own dream, which might someday come true with the winning attitude. 1999, Hyperion Books for Children, $4.99. Ages 10 up. Reviewer: Melinda Tierney
