The young adult novel about a courageous farm girl, Maggie Steele, who overcomes tragedy and rises to new heights as a pole-vaulter, has brightened the hearts of readers young and old.

Margaret Wheatley, 16, of Florida calls Maggie, “That one in a thousand books you will carry with you forever.”

Taylor Millsap, 14, of Illinois adds, “I’ve probably read it more than 20 times. I will never get tired of reading it over and over, again and again.”

Sports Writer Christine Brennan of USA TODAY, writes, “Girls who play sports and the coaches and families who support them will thoroughly enjoy this warm, uplifting story.”
