Figure skater Adam Rippon made as much news off the ice as on it during the 2018 Winter Olympics. If you were captivated then, you'll want to hear his memoir. With a poised delivery and lots of personality, Rippon details training with a succession of coaches; his close and complicated relationship with his mother; and coming out as gay, first to friends and family and then on the international stage. Rippon knows how to tell a story, and his anecdotes range from funny to intimate to TMI. His long road to the Olympics included struggles with perfectionism and disordered eating, and he's candid about the 2018 controversy with Vice President Pence. Listen for Rippon's inspiring journey, or for an insider's view of the world of competitive figure skating. J.M.D. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2019]
