Courage to Soar

by Simone Biles
cover: Courage to Soar
  • Three stars
    Give it a try, if you have the time.
    I personally really enjoyed Courage to Soar because it is a different read from other books. This YA novel is an autobiography by Simone Biles, 2016 Olympic Gold medalist and most decorated female gymnast in all of history, recalling her gymnastics career, from start to present. When Simone was young, she lived with a substance-abusing mother in a crude environment, but now, twenty years later, she is successful and continuing to thrive. This book explores why one choice can change our lives, the concept of working hard and making our dreams into reality, and, of course, how encouragement from others and believing in yourself gives you the courage to soar.
