ON TOP OF GLASS My Stories as a Queer Girl in Figure Skating

by | Read by Karina Manta

Young Adult Ages 12+ • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Ice dancer Karina Manta's sensitive performance of her memoir about life on and off the ice centers this thoughtful production. Raised in Arizona, Manta discovered an early passion for skating. The author's conversational style invites listeners to share in the joys and challenges of her experiences, including coming out and college life. As she examines the high personal costs connected with the stringent expectations of coaches and judges during her career as a competitive ice dancer, her voice grows quiet. Drawing from her own struggles with body image and mental health, Manta offers encouragement and empathetic support for anyone experiencing similar issues. Humorous asides appear throughout, alerting listeners to "spoiler alerts" for anecdotes. This audiobook offers an important voice for young athletes.
