Reviews

"A story lost to history illuminates the unique way sports supports feminism . . . A story about what running really is: competing with other runners and not against them." --Kirkus Reviews

"The book transports readers to an era of discrimination against women in organized sports and illustrates its effects on one girl's life. . .This involving story is well worth reading." --Booklist

"[A] thorough, fascinating biography." --Publishers Weekly

"Facts and statistics are seamlessly integrated in this title that will be especially appealing to sports aficionados and students of women's history. Recommended for all middle grade collections." --School Library Journal
