From Booklist:

Like football books for boys, there are never enough figure-skating books for girls. One of five new titles in the Girls Play to Win series, this begins with a look back at the origin of the sport and then traces the young women who played a role in skating from the olden days to today. The first of six chapters describes skating basics, citing Kim Yu-na (winner of a gold medal at the 2010 Olympics), and then the progression of stars begins: Sonja Henie, Peggy Fleming, Dorothy Hamill, Debi Thomas, Tonya Harding, Nancy Kerrigan, and Kristi Yamaguchi. (The attack on Kerrigan, engineered by Harding, is described under the subheading “Scandal Rocks the Sport.”) Color photos, sidebars, and boxed explanations break up the text, and keywords are printed in bold and listed in a glossary. The direct tone is intended to motivate fans and future skaters, and the facts along the way make this a nicely compact history. Grades 4-6. --Julie Cummins
