WHITESVLLE 1 J B CHEN Juvenile Fiction Book




Figure skating icon and U.S. National Champion Karen Chen tells the amazing story of her rise to the top, featuring never-before-seen photos and behind-the-scenes details from her journey on and off the ice!

At seventeen years old, Karen Chen has already achieved what some girls only dream of--and yet it's only the beginning for this incredibly talented athlete.

The daughter of Taiwanese immigrants, Karen began to figure skate at just five years old. Ten years and many grueling training sessions later, she broke out at the 2015 US Championships with a bronze medal. This was after sustaining a nearly career-ending ankle fracture a year earlier.

In 2017, Karen became the US National Champion, winning gold in two programs and receiving the highest score ever recorded for the short program at the US National level.

Now for the first time, Karen shares the story of how she got where she is today--and where she's going next. Karen has already overcome astounding obstacles, and her grit, determination, and positive attitude have made her future truly limitless.

In Finding the Edge, she shares, in her own words, what it's like to be Karen Chen--and what it takes to achieve the impossible.

Features a foreword from Kristi Yamaguchi, the Olympic champion, two-time World champion, and U.S. champion.
