In Epic Athletes: Simone Biles , celebrated sports journalist Dan Wetzel scores a perfect ten with this uplifting young reader's biography of gold medal gymnast Simone Biles! Featuring comic-style illustrations from Marcelo Baez! At the 2016 Summer Olympics, Simone Biles dazzled gymnastics fans across the globe with each jaw-dropping flip, twist, and dismount. Her record-breaking performance catapulted her to the top of the sport, and she quickly became a hero to young people. But well before Simone faced Olympic trials on the balance beam and rings, she confronted real-life challenges as a kid, as she moved in and out of foster care. With the support and love of her grandparents, plus her unwavering drive to make history on the ultimate stage in sports, she grew into an incredible role model and activist--and one of the greatest athletes of our time. Filled with sports action and bold comic-style illustrations, this inspiring biography recounts the incredible life of a world class gymnast. Praise for Epic Athletes: * "Wetzel knows how to organize the facts and tell a good story. . . an unusually informative and enjoyable sports biography for young readers." -- Booklist , STARRED review of Epic Athletes: Stephen Curry
