“Hard days are best because that’s when champions are made.” ~Gabby Douglas

Gabby Douglas

“Wait, Gabby Douglas?!” you say, “Isn’t she a gymnast?”

Yes, Gabrielle Douglas is a gold medal-winning U.S. gymnast. However, she is also the author of her autobiography: Grace, Gold, and Glory: My Leap of Faith. This autobiography chronicles Gabby’s early life and career, leading up to the 2012 Olympics. It’s written in a casual style that immediately draws you in. Gabby’s voice shines through and it feels as if she’s telling you the story of her life while simply hanging out.

If she ever decides to write another book I’ll be in line: her substance, story, and success are irreplaceable.

Stay fly,
