Simone Biles' entrance into the world of gymnastics may have started on a day-care field trip in her hometown of Spring, Texas, but her God-given talent, passion, and perseverance have made her one of the top gymnasts in the world as well as a four-time winner of Olympic gold in Rio de Janeiro.
But there is more to Simone than the 19 medals - 14 of them gold - and the Olympic successes. Through years of hard work and determination, she has relied on her faith and family to stay focused and positive while having fun competing at the highest level and doing what she loves. Here, in her own words, Simone takes you through the events, challenges, and trials that carried her from an early childhood in foster care to a coveted spot on the 2016 Olympic team.
Along the way Simone shares the details of her inspiring personal story - one filled with the kinds of daily acts of courage that led her - and can lead you - to even the most unlikely of dreams.

A little thin
While you can tell the enthusiasm put into his book by the author was incredible, the story at felt thin at times. Significant life events did impact the author and her story is interesting but the book lacks alot of substance and at times, the writing Seems like a space filler. Example: So then my neighbor made a fort and I said", I like your fort". And she said, "OK". There are numerous paragraphs similar to this throughout the book which I tried to be forgiving about, but eventually I just couldn't let them go. Maybe there wasn't really a full book to be made from the story. Overall not bad but i was left waiting to finish so i could move on to my next book.
