When all she wanted was to fit in, Tamika Catchings stood out and felt left out, never knowing one day she'd stand out--as a basketball superstar and an inspiration. She faced being set apart by her hearing loss, separated from family, living up to high expectations, and the pain and discouragement of debilitating physical injury. Yet she reached for the stars with hard work, perseverance, and her faith in God. Through the silence, she found the way to shine.Catch a Star tells Tamika's story of overcoming: of leading the Indiana Fever to its first championship, being named one of the WNBA's top fifteen players in history, earning three Olympic gold medals, and founding the Catch the Stars Foundation to help young people achieve their dreams. Her story will inspire readers to face their doubts and fears, encouraging them to reach for their own stars, no matter what challenges come their way.

Teamwork, Family, Perseverance, Faith, Community, Tamika knows it takes all of those things to make it. This was an inspiring read. If you are a sports fan you will enjoy this one. Tamika was born with moderate hearing loss and had to overcome many things through her faith to become who she is. It was very encouraging to read how she persevered to become a WNBA star. At times I had tears in my eyes as I read how she was bulled and picked on in school because of her hearing aids. I would recommend this book to someone who may have a child that has a disability that they are challenged with facing.
I gave this book 4 stars .
