"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Patrick broke ground when she became the first woman driver to lead laps in the history of the Indy 500, and her record-making driving career has earned her millions of fans, including many young people. This title begins with the exciting 2005 Indy race and then tracks back through Patrick’s youth and her start in driving, beginning with go-kart races in her early teens. Later chapters touch on Patrick’s shift to race cars, her early training, and the blossoming of her world-famous career. Hinman also covers Patrick’s personal life, including her marriage, but the emphasis is on the driving, and fans will be thrilled with the detailed accounts of action on the track, illustrated with numerous sharp color photos of cars and their drivers. Sidebars appearing throughout elaborate on related topics, such as racetrack flag signals. A time line, chapter notes, and a list of Web resources close this timely biography in the Xtreme Athletes series. Grades 5-8. --Gillian Engberg
