Simone Biles’ entrance into the world of gymnastics may have started on a daycare field trip in her hometown of Spring, Texas, but her God-given talent, passion, and perseverance have made her one of the top gymnasts in the world, as well as a four-time winner of Olympic gold in Rio de Janeiro.

But there is more to Simone than the nineteen medals—fourteen of them gold—and the Olympic successes. Through years of hard work and determination, she has relied on her faith and family to stay focused and positive, while having fun competing at the highest level and doing what she loves. Here, in her own words, Simone takes you through the events, challenges, and trials that carried her from an early childhood in foster care to a coveted spot on the 2016 Olympic team.

Beautiful, heartbreaking, inspiring story about one girl’s dream.

I have been curious about SIMONE BILES since I see her at Olympics trials, followed by the Olympics in 2016. I couldn’t help but wonder, how did she get there? and I had always been fascinated about gymnastic, despite fact that I was never good at it. I had read GABBY DOUGLAS memoir the year before. I was curious what journey SIMONE BILES had to face to get her to the Olympics. I knew that I had read her story once I found out that she had written a memoir. I wasn’t disappointed. COURAGE TO SOAR had my attention from the start till the end. There was a part of me that didn’t want to come to end, because I felt like I was saying goodbye to a friend.

I was proud of what Simone had accomplished, and fact that she didn’t give up. No matter how tough it got. I think it helped that she had support from both her family, and her friends and her coach. All of them were a big part of her success. I think if it was me, I wouldn’t been able to make it as far as her, under all of that pressure that she had to face. However, she made it, Simone had made it into Olympics even if it took her a while to get there. Simone is strong and dedicate and when she won, I was proud of her and all of her teammates. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for her next.

Do you love sports? Gymnastics? This memoir is worth every page. Once you pick it up, you won’t put it down till the end.

It’s breathtaking.
