A memoir by Olympic athlete and gold medalist Aly Raisman, including her path to success and motivational tips, as well as photos, social media and journal excerpts, and other documentation of her inspiring story.

Aly Raisman's skills as a gymnast have taken her to two Olympics (so far), but her charm and can-do attitude have helped her become a media darling and an inspiration to young girls everywhere. Not one to rest on her laurels (or rest at all!), Aly is so excited to share her story and the wisdom she has gained on her path to success.

Aly knows that she's a role model and she takes that seriously. She will offer readers an empowering message through her story, one that she learned the hard way: that knowing what you're capable of and having the faith in yourself to doubt the doubters is key.

Loved it!


Great read for myself as a 30 year old ex gymnast and my 7 year old gymnast loved me reading it with her.
