About the book:

She was the national champion five times. She represented her country in the Winter Olympics twice and at the world championships six times. The ice Follies presented her with the biggest contract ever offered a female athlete. It was a reward for fourteen years of work, skating six and seven hours a day while her friends were out having fun. It was a tribute to her unique family, who moved 100 miles from Chicago to Rockford, Illinois after commuting the distance each week for two years so Janet could skate with Slavka Kohout. And it was a crown for Miss Kohout herself, the coach who in a thousand ways taught a young girl the meaning of discipline and the joy of excellence. Through it all, Janet Lynn remains America's sweetheart...a blonde pixie on the ice with balletic moves, heart-stopping jumps, a radiant smile, and an unrestrained openness toward God, with whom she is unusually friendly. Here, told in her own words is how it all happened. Illustrated: 26 b/w photos.
