Later, she struggled through a tough training period in England and fought to become part of the Indy Racing League back in the United States. Since then, she has handled on-track adversity and the media spotlight with the support of her family.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* The Lifeline Biographies series, which is produced with access to USA Today’s archives, does a fantastic job of creating biographies that are both informative and eye-catching. Moreover, their subjects are of substantial interest to today’s kids. Even young readers with little interest in car racing will be caught up in the story behind Danica Patrick. By age 10, Patrick was involved with go-kart racing; two years later, she was a champion. From there she moved on to auto racing, and in 2005, she came in fourth at the Indy 500. This involving story does more than recount the high times. Teammates are killed, loyalties switch, and personal criticism is a fact of life in the limelight. “In Focus” sidebars, pertinent articles from USA Today, source notes, and great graphics all help make this series a standout. Grades 6-10. --Ilene Cooper
