This inspirational true story about Kathrine Switzer is exceptionally well written and very uplifting. It’s a perfect pairing of story, style, and gorgeous illustrations, with a real life character kids will care about and a rewarding finish sure to inspire everyone, even those who aren’t familiar with Switzer’s story.
I’m a girl who plays hockey and I’ve been told once or twice I’ll never get to my dream , to play in the NHL.all so I love this book.
It is a great book, it really shows that all the controversies that they had about women back then, were really lies, and women are just as good at anything that men can do, if not better. Also, I agree with what @kittylove22 said.
