We Got Game!

35 Female Athletes Who Changed the World

A middle grade anthology of 35 amazing and empowering women in sports from around the world and throughout history to inspire young readers to be their best selves and to get involved in social change.

Do you play sports? Maybe you dream about scoring a goal on the soccer field or hitting a home run in baseball. Perhaps you’re thinking about trying a new sport, but you’re still not sure.

In We Got Game you’ll meet thirty-five female athletes who played hard, broke records, and inspired girls around the world. Some of these athletes have retired. Others are still competing. But they have one thing in common: they all got game! You’ll read about the first woman horse jockey to compete in the Kentucky Derby, the number one tennis player in the world, a surfer who lost her arm in a shark attack, and a snow boarder who landed a death-defying jump, along with many others. These female athletes prove that girls can do anything!
