This is a horrible book full of vicious lies and slander - DO NOT BUY IT! DO NOT SUPPORT THIS AUTHOR! Kathryn's mother has been destroyed by the false statements and completely made up fiction that she wrote in order to create a sensational book. There is outright defamation against Kathryn's brother in this book. The impact of the things she has said about him have effected his life for years. Kathryn Bertine is evil. She seeks only to attack and destroy institutions that have given her support. From her mother, to the figure skating world, to the olympic scoring system that she feels is against her. Ignore this book. Be kind and let this author fade into obscurity. She deserves far worse.

With her dream always on her mind, Kathryn Bertine, always pushed herself to be a professional figure skater. She went into the show business and ended up with ‘Hollywood on Ice” traveling South America in a portable ice rink. This show had live animals along with skaters that dressed up as animals, with numbers varying from The Little Mermaid to Flashdance. She soon realized that going pro was not all that she expected and it forced her to go against her athletic ideals. She ended up planning to steal back her passport to leave the company. This book is good for anyone that wants to become a professional dancer or skater and enter the show business, because it reveals the darker sides of the business. There’s a lot of unknown when it comes to a traveling show, between one dressing room and not being allowed to carry your own personal belongings such as a passport. I enjoyed learning about the behind the scene details found in the show business that are hidden from the public. It is inspiring that someone is willing to do whatever it takes to get back to their athletic beliefs, when it is almost impossible to escape the tough circumstances that come with being a part of a show. The major message I found in this book was that you should never let a job pull you away from your dreams and that you should never let anything change your beliefs. If you believe in being athletic, you shouldn’t let anything get in your way. Hearing about her story inspired me to stay true to what I believe and my dreams. I did not enjoy how she didn’t talk very much about her career as a figure skater and she seemed to talk more about her other experiences.

It seems like she talked more about rowing than skating, but overall, it was a great book.

Unlike the Library Journal reviewer, I actually found that the experiences other than skating were actually the more interesting parts; I felt that the skating stories became repititious after a bit but enjoyed reading about the other part of the author's life.

This book was excellent! Being a former figure skater and all around athlete I can relate to the trials and tribulations in this book and so could many other people. Kathrin has such an exciting story to tell and I wish that everyone would read this book to hear it for themselves!

Although I had my doubts about a memoir by a 25 year old, the book was a good read. The author writes very well. The descriptions of the skating tours, although similar, were interesting. I was most interested in her experiences growing up in a town and family that bestowed many privileges but at a very high cost.

This skater's memoir was much better than I expected. She has a very refreshing viewpoint and excellent observations. It is a funny and sad portrait of dreams evaporating and growning up in a world that has deceived many of us. I grew up in the same hometown and know what it is like to escape from expectations placed on you by parents from a generation who still think it's 1958.
