Being the Lady Vol fan that I am, I couldn't wait to get this book. (I have read both of Pat Summit's). This book gives you a very up-close and personal look at Chamique, and all of those involved in her life. She lets you into her thoughts and feelings. Great personal feelings of the UT Lady Vols basketball program in general. I sat down to read a few pages and finished the book the very next day. Chamique has touched a part of me that I didn't think she could. I really recommend this to all her fans, young and old, and fans of women's basketball in general.

Being a Lady Vol for years, I watched Chamique from afar doing what she loved-basketball. You could tell ( as a stranger) that she was special. I drove for three hours to see Holdsclaw and her team play.You just do not do that for womens basketball, or not until she came along. This book included a inside look at Holdsclaw that you did not see on the court. Relationship conflicts you did not hear. Childhood fears and dreams many live. But Holdsclaw was lucky and found her escape-basketball. She is today one to admire. She is the best and she went to the best- a program that has the best coaches and best players. This book is a must read!!! Go Chamique!! Best Wishes!!

I don't know how to express how Chamique's book has given me confindence. Knowing Chamique is succeeding over come obstacles in her here life has given me inspiration. The book has taught me to work hard in school and on the basketball court. If you work hard you will success in great things. It could be changing the world or graduating from High School.

Chamique reveals the obstacles she has overcome to be the superstar she is. Instead of dwelling on her troubled family life, she excelled in basketball. She's gracious: she credits her grandmother, uncle, coaches, teammates, and God for her success; she tells how she reconciled with her parents. Unlike certain NBA players, Chamique isn't likely to miss practices, make a violent rap album, or become a prima donna. She is acutely aware of her status as a role model and that her talent is a gift. This is a book that all kids should read.

Chamique has a dramatic, compelling story to tell and you won't be able to put this book down. She prevails over poverty, insecurities and a dysfunctional family to pursue a dream few women have achieved. But it's not just a classic rags-to-riches story. She's wiser than her 22 years and with the help co-author Jennifer Frey she's put together a book filled with hope and inspiration.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book, not only from the basketball perspective, but even more from the human aspect. Chamique is a great example for children coming from broken homes and dysfunctional situations. I think it's a must read for anyone battling extreme obstacles.

Chamiquqe did a good job writing about her life,but it wasn't as good applying it to her life. It was about her family, basketball, but wasn't very much on focus. It was an okay book.
