Kelly’s Book Review: Grace, Gold, and Glory: My Leap of Faith by Gabby Douglas

Gabby Douglas, the reigning Olympic All Around Gymnastics gold champion, is such an inspiring young woman. Even though gymnastics is something I have been interested in since my childhood, her story will still impact those who are not as interested in the sport.

She tells her life story in a young voice and will attract teenage readers with her text lingo (i.e. lol), and her love for current pop culture (i.e. tv show, Vampire Diaries). Her story especially will resonate with young teenage girls because her desires and difficulties closely mirror those of any average teenager.

Yes, training for the Olympics is something very few teenage girls have the opportunity or desire to do, but all of us have dreams and goals that require persistence to achieve.

If you'd like to read this book, you can call the Information Desk (856) 794-4244 ext. 4243.
