About this title

Synopsis:

This is the story of how a feisty little girl from Long Island became one of the world's most famous disabled sports figures.

From the Inside Flap:

Touching, funny, and honest, In a Single Bound is the story of how a feisty little girl from Long Island became one of the world’s most famous disabled sports figures. A world-class athlete and a celebrated television personality, Sarah Reinertsen not only takes us to the Ironman World Championship in Hawaii, she also provides a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at her season on CBS’s The Amazing Race 10, where millions watched her climb up the Great Wall of China, scale the cliffs of Vietnam, and ride horses in the hinterlands of Mongolia.
But In a Single Bound is about more than sports and television. A gripping memoir of inner strength, it is about a one-legged child trying to fit in with her two-legged friends. It’s about a girl dealing with an abusive father the same father who introduced her to another female amputee at a race when she was eleven, which then opened up a whole new world for Sarah. It’s about an adolescent girl learning to deal with the media as she became a rising star a girl mustering the inner strength to go stag to her senior prom, and dealing with body image issues that would turn a typical Gossip Girl into a blubbering mess. It’s about Sarah’s hard-fought, inspiring quest to become an Ironman. In a Single Bound is about a woman who dared to fear less and live more.
