Yes, the Olympic silver medalist from Utah. She talks about her journey to the Olympics & how she stayed "focused," through one of her scary accidents, and in her daily life. You get to learn a little bit about the Olympics, her, her family, and her sport. She inspired me to try new things to find out what I like, because you never know if that is going to be your favorite thing or something that you are really good at. (Yes, that means to try new foods too.)
Soul Surfer- Bethany Hamilton.
The amazing surfer that got her arm bitten off by a shark. (how do you make that any less horrible or gory than it is?!?) You get to read all about her and her life before and after the accident. Whats amazing is that she kept going when things got tough, and how she never gave up no matter the situation. She didn't give up on her dreams. This story showed me I can accomplish my dreams and even though hard times come you can get over them and keep going.
WHO SHOULD READ THESE BOOKS: If you need a little motivation to keep going. To help you do hard things. Then these books are for YOU! (and if you love sports, but you don't need to to read these! they are so amazing!)
