“The joy and excitement of engaging in sports and/or competitive activities dates back to the beginning of time.  The opportunity to participate is more recent for women, and the passion is no less profound.  This novel, When Girls Became Lions, illustrates the emotion of sport as it chronicles the journey of fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, grandparents, coaches, school administrators and students during the transition from pre-Title IX expectations to 20th century possibilities.  You’ll be inspired by the story!” —Jean Driscoll, Eight-time winner of the Boston Marathon, U.S. Olympic Hall of Fame
