Product Details

Praise

*“Andrew Maraniss, known for his prolific narrative nonfiction writings focused on disenfranchised and often forgotten athletic heroes…now seeks to chronicle the 1976 US National Women’s Basketball team’s triumph in the Montreal Olympics. More than just a history or collection of biographies, this title presents a sociological study about the role of women in US sports…Not only ideal for sports historians or basketball enthusiasts, this book would also make great fodder for read-alouds about underdogs and strong females.”–School Library Connection (starred review)

*
“The underdog story of America’s first women’s Olympic basketball team plays out in this thoughtful exploration of social change…a book that will stick with readers long after they put it down…A winning story full of heart, camaraderie, and power.”–Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
