Product Description

About the Author

Gabrielle Douglas is a two-time Olympic gold medalist. At the 2012 Summer Olympics, she made history, becoming the first US gymnast to take home a team and an individual gold medal in the same Olympics. Gabrielle began her training at age six, and became the Virginia State Champion only two years later. When she was fourteen, she left her family in Virginia Beach to train with coach Liang Chow in Des Moines, Iowa. Under Chow’s guidance, and with tremendous faith in God’s plan for her, Gabrielle competed in the Olympic Trials and walked away with the only guaranteed spot on the team. Since her Olympic triumph, Gabrielle has used her platform to inspire millions with a powerful message: With hard work and persistence, any dream is possible. Visit her online at www.gabrielledouglas.com



Michelle Burford is a Harvard-trained journalist in Manhattan and a founding editor of O, The Oprah Magazine. Though she has visited nearly three dozen countries on six continents and interviewed scores of folks along the way, she’d never once even attempted a cartwheel until the day she watched Gabby claim the Olympic gold medal. One month and two enormous bumps on the forehead later, Michelle teamed up with Gabby to bring you the story behind the story. To check out more of Michelle's creations, swing by www.michelleburford.com.

HASH(0x99f59318) out of 5 stars A must-read for teen athletes Dec 7 2012
By VJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Are you a teen athlete or the parent supporting the dream of one? Gabby Douglas unlocks her story, and in doing so, she inspires the young athletes and their parents who follow a similar path. Giving the glory to God, Gabby is living proof that faith and family sustain when the physical body and mind fall short. When I read the end of chapter 18, my eyes filled with tears. Gabby knows my daughter's conflict! It isn't just me as a mom and my daughter as a Junior Olympic athlete (a diver, not a gymnast, but it all rings true, regardless of the sport). Even the best, most talented, and most successful like Gabby Douglas are torn between being a top-performing athlete and being a normal teenager. Her writing sings to the heart of a teen, phrased in a way that lets your mind imagine the exact words coming from a little personal text message from Gabby to you. She empowers her decisions with Biblical truth, and in doing so, she helps us believe that God's plan is perfect, no matter how the world may convince you otherwise. This is a must-read, and I can hardly wait until Christmas day, when my daughter can devour Gabby's inspiring words.

HASH(0x99f59564) out of 5 stars Such an Inspiring Story! Dec 7 2012
By Mia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As the editor of Their Journey to the PhD, I know first-hand about overcoming struggles to achieve something great and wanting to inspire others with our actions! From being homeless to experiences with racism, she provides a real life discussion of her journey to the gold medal in the sport of gymnastics. I highly recommend this book for anyone to read but especially for young girls who have a dream.

HASH(0x99f597a4) out of 5 stars Awesome Book for Teens and Parents Dec 27 2012
By Mom2teen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book had to be the best Christmas gift that my teen had under the tree in relation to the substance in it. It speaks talks about having a "Faith Walk" and several scriptures to support Gabby's walk along the way. It shows that it's not easy accomplishing your dreams, but knowing that if Gabby got there, you can too. I read the book in less than one day. I didn't want to put it down because I wanted to hear more about her struggle and determination to get there. The book is also on a level the teens can understand and very interesting to keep their attention. I highly recommend this book!!

HASH(0x99f59948) out of 5 stars A New Favorite Autobiography from my Favorite Olympic Athlete! April 30 2013
By My Full Bookshelf Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is probably my favorite autobiographies I have read so far. It was so cool to read about my all-time favorite olympic athlete and learn more about her.

Gabby's story is really inspirational, and one that I would encourage people to read. She overcame so much; a rare disorder, bullying, and an absent father. It is easy to see when reading that her faith is really important to her!

It's cool to read about Gabby as a normal kid, as well as learn about her road to the Olympics. At one point, Gabby talks about how she and her friend loved the show H2O: Just Add Water, which I thought was awesome because my sister and I used to watch that show all the time!

The one thing I didn't like was that there were one or two 'lols'. I don't exactly love it when people put text talk in a book; save it for your phones! That is the only thing that really annoyed me about this book. Other than that, I thought it was a wonderful, inspirational book. If you loved the olympics, and especially if you love gymnastics, Gabby Douglas' autobiography is an absolute must-read!

HASH(0x99f59d14) out of 5 stars Wholesome, positive book for young readers March 5 2015
By Amy B - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My 10-year-old daughter loved this book and shared it with friends in her 4th grade class who all loved it too. Gabby talks about how her faith, friends and family helped her overcome the obstacles she faced on the way to achieving her Olympic dream. This is a wholesome, positive book and Gabby is a great role model for young girls. It's written in the first person, almost like a journal. For grade-schoolers becoming curious about the teenage phase, it's often hard to find books that are suitable for young readers. This one is terrific. For older readers with an interest in Gabby and gymnastics, this book will not disappoint. I read it so my daughter and I could talk about it, and I thoroughly enjoyed it - well-written and honest, it also conveys the excitement of competition through the eyes of a young, world-class athlete.
