Earphones Award Winner

Biography & Memoir • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrator Allyson Ryan has found that magical spot that makes listeners forget they're not listening to a memoir read by its author. In this audiobook, elite cross-country skier Jessie Diggins shares the details of her life--from growing up in rural Minnesota to standing on the podium in Pyeongchang, South Korea, to accept the United States' first ever Olympic Gold Medal in cross-country skiing. Ryan's easygoing delivery captures Diggins's humor and adventurous spirit, and clearly conveys the skier's love for her family and teammates. Ryan also believably conveys the athlete's emotional struggle with an eating disorder as well as her focused determination when training and competing. Diggins's can-do attitude, loyalty, and willingness to work hard are inspiring. C.B.L. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2020]
