A new rave from Les Norman, former Jr. Olympic Gold Medalist, MLB outfielder, TV analyst & syndicated sports radio host (who recently interviewed Val & Jo on his show, “Breakin’ the Norm”):
“As an AVID sports fan and voracious reader, I search for compelling stories that will both move my heart and have the potential to change the world. I found those very things in WHEN GIRLS BECAME LIONS! I laughed, cried, grew angry at injustice, and cheered with joy. This is not only a book about the champion spirit that lies within female athletes, but the athlete in general . . .
Jo & Val have given the highest honor to the trailblazers of Title IX, to those of us who’ve been honored & blessed to wear an athletic uniform, and to athletes, coaches and parents of either gender who live out their passion by giving with all their heart. WHEN GIRLS BECAME LIONS brings about a triumph of the human spirit and resolve, and is now one of my favorite books of all time!! I highly recommend it for both female and male athletes alike!” (Read Les’s review of LIONS here.)
