Finding the Edge: My life on the Ice

Written by Karen Chen with Natalie England

With the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics just around the corner, this is a good book to introduce the reader to a member of Team USA’s figure skaters. Karen gives the reader a glimpse into the dedication and passion an athlete must possess in order to achieve national success. Rising to the top is often fraught with setbacks, pain, and challenges. The author discusses the importance of discovering personal strengths and weaknesses and setting goals to achieve success. The ultimate theme of the book is finding a passion that brings you joy and believing in your capabilities.
