Reviews

2018 Amelia Bloomer List selection, American Library Association

"Exhaustive and enlightening--don't miss it."
- Kirkus Reviews "This is one of the books we've been waiting for--a compendium of great women athletes and the struggles they faced. As Billie Jean King taught us, 'Pressure is a privilege.'"
- Lesley Visser, Hall of Fame sportscaster "This luminescent book tells the stories of women and girls who have not only excelled in athletics, but also often changed the world by doing so. I was agog at these lively biographies, and dazzled by the accompanying illustrations that seem to cartwheel, swim, pole vault, and double flip off the page. This is a book for girls who want inspiration on the field, in the pool, or down the track. It's also for girls who aren't sporty at all, but love stories of courage, perseverance, sass, doggedness, and fun. And don't forget the boys, who will be riveted by these rollicking tales and who need to see that girl power has been alive and well for many years, and is alive and well today."
- Caroline Paul, author of The Gutsy Girl "Rachel Ignotofsky's delightful book renders the healthy pleasure of sports for girls and women in buoyant color and form--from Bloomer Girls to Skate Bettys, in calf length skirts or disguised as men--reminding us that no matter if you are nine or ninety-eight, the question to ask is, 'What is my next victory?'"
- Mina Samuels, author of Run Like a Girl "What an inspiring book! These beautifully drawn portraits cover the triumphs and troubles of fifty athletes--some you've heard of and many you haven't. There's a familiar pattern to these stories: A woman sets her mind on something, someone tells her it can't be done, and she goes ahead and does it anyway, setting records along the way. You'll cheer for these ladies, and for author Rachel Ignotofsky."
- Lisa Taggart, author of Women Who Win
