Review: As Fast as Her by:Coyne

 As Fast As Her: Dream Big, Break Barriers, Achieve Success

**Disclosure**This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

 About the Book:

In this inspiring book, US Olympian and hockey star Kendall Coyne shares the grit and determination it took to break down barriers and achieve her dreams against tremendous odds, encouraging young people to follow their passions and never give up.

The world told Kendall Coyne to slow down. They said “not so fast” when she picked up hockey skates instead of figure skates. They said “just a minute” when she tried out for the boy's team. They told her “you're not enough” so often that she started to believe it. But Kendall had a passion and a dream, so instead of slowing down, she sped up, going on to win Olympic gold and a place at the NHL’s All-Star weekend.

As Fast as Her explores how Kendall held on to her dream, overcame her insecurities and naysayers, and pushed herself past barriers to achieve her goals—and how you can too! Inside, Kendall shares:

stories that illustrate the lessons she's learned and how to apply them for success
encouragement to help young people know they are good enough—to fit in, to find their “why,” and to create lasting change for others
her personal trials and triumphs, inspiring readers to discover what excites and exhausts them—and help them to be as relentless in achieving their own goals
behind-the-scenes and personal photos in a full-color 8-page insert 
In addition, As Fast as Her is perfect for:

readers 13 and up looking for an uplifting true story
fans of the NHL, NWHL, Olympic hockey, and women's sports
birthday, Christmas, and holiday gifts for teens and young adults

My Review:

 Kendall Coyne is no stranger to hard work and determination. Shes had to fight for her spot in this world for awhile now. After being told "no" so many times or that "you are not good enough" after so long you start to believe it.

 The Olympics is every athletes dream and really their end goal. And Kendall had no problem sharing her athleticism with the world. Its just her route there started in a different way than every other athlete you read about or follow.

 The story of an exceptional athlete that began her career in a very unconventional way. She didnt give up when everyone was trying to force her to. She had a dream and goal and she followed through and is now a gold medalist.

Great story!
