Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-8-- This short biography chronicles the life of the first African-American women's tennis player to reach the finals at Wimbleton since Althea Gibson. The story of Garrison's struggles to develop from a playground tennis player to a finalist in 1990 in spite of difficult times, discrimination, insecurities, the deaths of her parents, and bulimia is written in a factual, unbiased manner. The people and events that influenced this plucky woman's rise to fame are presented in short, lively paragraphs with accurate quotes. However, while the paragraphs are brief, the sentences are often long and complex. Only two paragraphs describe Garrison's bronze medal in singles play and gold medal in doubles play in the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, Korea. The lack of depth may leave readers wanting more information. Every double-page spread has high-quality black-and-white photographs of Garrison and the people and many significant events in her life. The book will appeal to those who want to know about successful contemporary African-American women, tennis stars, or female athletes. --Janice C.
