RISING ABOVE Inspiring Women in Sports

by | Read by Gabra Zackman

Children Ages 10+ • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

The difference between an ordinary athlete and a champion often comes down to attitude and inspiration. Gabra Zackman engagingly narrates this wide-ranging collection of stories about high-achieving women in a variety of sports--Venus and Serena Williams, Simone Biles, Carli Lloyd, and others. Zackman has a pleasant, conversational tone while relating the events of these athletes' lives on and off the field and court. She excels at creating distinct voices for a dozen women of diverse backgrounds and experiences. Zackman's skill at bringing to life their recollections of the difficulties they have faced and the feelings of triumph in their victories elevates this audiobook beyond a mere recitation of facts to a remarkable look at what it takes to succeed in sports and in life.
