Nicola appeared in a BBC list of 100 top inspirational women, and reading her story you can see why. After joining an all-boys boxing club in Leeds, it soon became clear she was a natural. But then her mum became ill, and she had family responsibilities to take on, and her trainer couldn't get her a proper fight. How could Nicola continue to pursue her dream now? This is the story of how - with the spirit and determination of a champion - Nicola fought her way to the top of her sport. Dream to Win: Nicola Adams is written by expert author Roy Apps for kids with a reading age of 7 (but could also be enjoyed by pre-teens) and illustrated with black-and-white artwork. The stories focus on top athletes and sport personalities, with each dramatic story bringing to life the skill, determination and luck needed to break through into top level competition. This title is published by Franklin Watts EDGE, which produces a range of books to get children reading with confidence. EDGE - for books children can't put down.
