From the Inside Flap:

Take a ride on Shellie's roller coaster life as she pioneers in sports, trailblazing her way through pain and tragedy with an enduring optimism giving voice to her unique style of independent spirit, true grit, courage and redemption.

Review:

"Waterski Girl Wonder is Shellie Blum's autobiography. She describes herself as 'the first female freestyle waterski ramp jumper in the world', but to the reader, she's someone who leaps and soars forward no matter what comes her way. Her ascending show and competitive waterskiing career is suddenly derailed by a devastating accident (doctors were amazed she survived) and Blum is grounded without funds or profession. In great pain from a broken neck and shattered right jaw, she must fight for compensation by trying to prove the new waterskiing equipment she used was faulty and that her co-worker in the speedboat was negligent. Calling on her tenacious nature and athletic training, she jumps and dodges the hurdles thwarting her at every turn.
 
Blum writes in a straightforward manner that speaks to the reader. You root for her to succeed in a sport where women were expected to serve lunch and then enthrall crowds with spectacular waterskiing feats. You cringe and ache for her when things go horribly wrong, yet resume cheerleading as she refuses to be silenced and impoverished. It's clear that Waterski Girl Wonder is the story Blum needed to tell, inspiring readers on her quest for justice with the skills she honed on the water." -  Lita Smith-Mines, Editor Boating Times Long Island
