Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7-12-- While Gibson's life was successful in the tennis arena, she was not as triumphant in other aspects of her life. Biracree provides a chronology of her trials, accomplishments, and failures. An introduction by the president of Radcliffe College is lively and motivational. The biography of the first black woman of tennis does not go beyond 1975, and does not mention her induction into the Hall Of Fame. It also does not tell of her doubles' achievements. A narrative style with quotes from Gibson's journal, black-and-white photographs of good quality, along with short chapters provide easy reading. Readers interested in famous women, black Amercians, tennis, and/or sports figures will find the book informative. --Janice C. Hayes, Middle Tennessee State University, Murfreesboro
