Compelling personal account of how the author's and other young gymnasts' inborn competitiveness played into the hands of abusive and evil coaches. The fact that these promising young girls lived away from their parents led to warped attachments. In the end, though the author has successfully transitioned into a high-powered business career and motherhood, certain demons still haunt her. This book was written years before the Nasser molestation cases, but there is mention of suspected sexual exploitation of some girls by coaches.
