Publisher Description:
The top Paralympic swimmer in the world, Jessica Long delivers an inspirational photographic memoir.

Born in Siberia with fibular hemimelia, Jessica Long was adopted from a Russian orphanage at thirteen months old and has since become the second most decorated U.S. Paralympic athlete of all time. Now, Jessica shares all the moments in her life--big and small, heartbreaking and uplifting--that led to her domination in the Paralympic swimming world. This photographic memoir, filled with photographs, sidebars, quotes, and more, will thrill her fans and inspire those who are hearing her story for the first time.

Contributor Bio(s): Long, Jessica: - Jessica Long was a Russian orphan born with a condition which forced the amputation of both her legs below the knees. But that didn't stop her determined spirit. At age twelve, she was the youngest member on the U.S. Paralympic Team, and the winner of three gold medals at the 2004 games in Athens, Greece. Now, with thirteen Paralympic gold medals to her name, she is an established champion athlete, positive role model for young women, and source of inspiration for anyone who admires tough underdogs. Follow her on Twitter @JessicaLong and on Instagram @jessicatatianalong.
