Reviews

School Library Journal - Abby Bussen, Muskego Public Library, WI

"Spanning several sports in each volume, these read more like record books and are exceptional in their inclusion of athletes with whom casual sports enthusiasts will not be familiar. . . .Even the least heart-wrenching stories will serve as bridges, encouraging students to do more research on these fascinating athletes who are heroes in more ways than one, each making huge impacts both in- and outside their respective sports. The strong writing and inclusion of many photographs make these titles exceptional selections. A top pick for tweens." - School Library Journal
