Courage to Soar : A Body in Motion, a Life in Balance
by Simone Biles and Michelle Burford




Overview -

In Courage to Soar, the official autobiography from four-time Olympic gold-winning and record-setting American gymnast Simone Biles, Simone shares how her faith, family, passion, and perseverance against tremendous odds made her one of the top athletes and record-breaking gymnasts in the world--and how you too can overcome challenges in your life.

In this book, Simone shares:

  • how she has relied on her faith and family to stay focused and positive
  • the ways she's continued competing at the highest level and having fun doing what she loves
  • behind-the-scenes looks at gymnastics events, including the 2016 Olympics
  • the events, challenges, and trials that carried her from an early childhood in foster care to a coveted spot on the U.S. Olympic team and worldwide stardom

Simone Biles' entrance into the world of gymnastics may have started on a field trip in her hometown of Spring, Texas, but her God-given talent, along with drive to succeed no matter the obstacle, are what brought her to the national spotlight during the Olympic Games and have catapulted her ever since--including 25 World Championship medals. But there is more to Simone than the accomplishments.

Inside this book, Simone shares the details of her inspiring personal story--one filled with the kinds of daily acts of courage that led her, and can lead you, to even the most unlikely of dreams.
