Catch a Star: Shining Through Adversity to Become a Champion by Tamika Catchings with Ken Petersen

About the Book
Goodreads | Amazon
Teamwork. Family. Perseverance. Faith. Community. Excellence.

Growing up, Tamika Catchings suffered from profound hearing loss, bullying, and the anguish of her parents' divorce. But she wasn't about to allow those challenges to determine her destiny. Through perseverance and God's grace, Tamika became one of the top female basketball players of all time.

Catch a Star is her story of overcoming. Of leading the Indiana Fever to its first championship. Of being named one of the WNBA's top fifteen players in history. Of earning three Olympic gold medals. And of founding the Catch the Stars Foundation to help young people achieve their dreams. 

Her story will inspire you to face your doubts and fears and reach for your own dream, no matter what challenges come your way.

Catch a Star: Shining Through Adversity to Become a Champion tells the fascinating story of Tamika Catchings from the challenges she faced growing up to the success she found playing basketball. It’s an inspiring book that motivates its readers to overcome any obstacle and reach for any dream. I really enjoyed reading Catch a Star - though I imagine I would have appreciated certain aspects of the book more if I had more knowledge of basketball. Still, it’s great and worth the read.

Thanks to Revell Reads, I received a copy of Catch a Star and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
