Overview


The evidence is overwhelming: sports help girls grow into strong women. Both scientific studies and anecdotal evidence confirm that athletic girls not only grow up to be healthier; they learn teamwork, gain inner confidence, and grow into society's leaders. Sports help preteen and teenage girls make the right choices in a society that is sending them incredibly mixed messages about who they are supposed to be. Yet no one is speaking directly to these girls. Jennie fills the role of girlfriend, big sister, team captain, and mentor. A smart, credible, and accomplished voice from an athlete who is strong and feminine, fiercely competitive, and fashionably cool, Jennie is someone young women will listen to and take to heart. Jennie's message: Believe in yourself. Go for it, girls.

I love this book! I live and breathe softball. Jennie is very inspirational in this book and teaches to be yourself and give the game you love your all. I am very confident in myself thanks to Jennie. I dream big and work hard towards my goals on and off the field. Softball is a game of failure. You have to think positive and tell yourself that you are good and to take a challenge.

This is great book for girls that not only play softball but all girls. This book is about Jennie Finch (pro softball player). It is about how she never gave up when one coach told her she wasn't good enough and wasn't a champion or even a winner. This is a wonderful book that is a must read for all girls.

I am a Dad of two softball players, and also a softball coach. I try to read all I can about coaching so that I may be a better coach to the young ladies on my teams. I have this book an A+ rating, and will be sharing it with the girls on my team, and their parents.
