My Thoughts:

This is a great book of short stories full of depth and meaning! Included in it's pages are sport, courage and going beyond what is thought one could. The scene is during the Olympics from the years 1983-2012 and speaks of those struggling to make it and overcoming the obstacles they thought they never could. The characters in the book are more realistic than I ever thought they would be. Parents dealing with not only their career but a child with special needs. It inspires to not give up and to go for your dreams no matter what obstacles stand in your way! I thought this to be an amazing read and would recommend it!
