<strong>A vibrant picture book biography of Surya Bonaly, the figure skating champion who backflipped her way into history.</strong><br /><br />As a young girl in France, Surya Bonaly was constantly in motion, gifted in any sport she tried. But it was figure skating that had her heart. Surya knew she belonged on the ice.<br /><br />Her colorful costumes, exuberant routines, powerful jumps, and daring combinations were all expressions of her love for skating and her ambition to push the boundaries of what a figure skating champion could look like.<br /><br />Some people weren#&39;t sure Surya belonged on top of the podium. &quot;Is she graceful enough?&quot; they asked. &quot;Does she look like a skater?&quot; But Surya#&39;s fearless heart propelled her to always stay true to herself while pursuing her boldest dreams.<br /><br /><strong>Culminating in her iconic backflip performed at the 1998 Olympics, <em>Fearless Heart </em>is a lushly illustrated, lyrical story of self-expression and courage.</strong>
