She takes us on a whirlwind journey from the courts of the projects in Astoria, Queens to the University of Tennessee and on to Washington as she joined the WNBA as a first round draft pick for the Mystics. As her childhood dreams start to come true, many other parts of her life begin to fall apart. She struggles with the death of her grandmother as well as personal and family issues that ultimately lead her to play in new places and with new teams. During these changes, Mique eventually reaches her breaking point and seeks help. She learns that she is suffering from depression and struggles to balance taking the medication that helps her with how it makes her feel and her performance on the court. Eventually, she is driven to attempt suicide.
Breaking Through: Beating the Odds Shot after Shot is a candid memoir about so much more than basketball. It is about one of the greatest basketball players to ever live identifying and fighting her demons both on and off the court.Read more ›
