Narrator Carolyn Kang describes the life and career of the first American woman in space, Sally Ride. This biography details her early life as an aspiring tennis player in California in the 1950s. Though sometimes bored in school, Ride was fascinated by science at a time when girls were not encouraged to become scientists. She went on to get advanced degrees in physics and become one of the first females to be recruited to work at NASA. Kang's calm tone and measured pace reflect the discipline that helped Ride succeed as a woman in a male-dominated field. A list of tips at the end of the audiobook will give kids ideas for ways they can "persist" and follow their own dreams. S.C. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2021]
