Grace, Gold, and Glory: My Leap of Faith

In the 2012 London Olympics, American gymnast Gabrielle Douglas stole hearts and flew high as the All-Around Gold Medal winner and the brightest star of the U.S. gold-medal-winning women’s gymnastics team. That same year, Gabby was also named the 2012 Sportswoman of the Year by the Women's Sports Foundation. Trolls may have mocked her natural hair, but she refused to let the naysayers dull her triumph — or the record she set as the first African-American gymnast in Olympic history to become the individual All-Around champion.

In this personal autobiography, Gabby tells her story of faith, perseverance, and determination. She follows her career from the time she first entered a gymnasium to her gold-medal-winning performances, highlighting the struggles she faced along the way and how she turned to her family and her beliefs to overcome them. This powerful memoir is a reminder to young readers that they can reach their dreams when they let themselves soar.
