Product Description

From Library Journal

Grade 7 Up-In the first section, the authors profile 25 young women between the ages of 14 and 24 who have demonstrated considerable mental and physical courage in pursuit of personal challenges. Their adventures range from physically daring, including skydiving and mountain climbing, to those that include public service, such as home building for Habitat for Humanity. Each 6-to-10 page profile offers a personal narrative, brief biographical information, and two black-and-white photographs. A short annotated list of germane titles, Web sites, and organizations follows each profile and serves as a useful springboard for readers who might want to find more information on a specific activity. Part two, "How to Be Gutsy Yourself," offers information on getting one's mind and body in shape. Each of these two sections includes "Take Action" suggestions and is also followed by an annotated bibliography of books, organizations, and Web sites. The book concludes with a lengthy list of women and girls who have made history. A successful presentation of motivational material.

In this book, Gutsy Girls, you will find that the girls have a lot of guts. I recommend this book to girls who love sports because it is about sports. One of the parts I liked was Beth Rodden's story. She was a rock climber and she said that rock climbing doesn't only include physical strength it also requires mental strength.

Though I have not read this book in its entirety, I need to recommend it. I have a student who has been reluctant to read all year-- until I got her this book. She simply could not put it down. She loves the stories, and I love the easy writing style. This book has put her on her way to becoming a reader!

This book highlights many wonderful girls but none are more impressive that Crystal Pakizer, the young horse gymnast. She recently competed at the Natioanl Chapionships with a recently broken toe and took National Pas De Duex Championship and Reserve Silver Championship. That is what I call a Gutsy Girl!
