Publisher's Description

When all she wanted was to fit in, Tamika Catchings never imagined one day she'd stand out--as a basketball superstar and an inspiration. Catchings faced being set apart by her hearing loss, separation from family, living up to high expectations, and the pain and discouragement of debilitating physical injuries. 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 to the WNBA's All Decade Team, earning four 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.

"Tamika Catchings has lived an extraordinary life. This remarkable book tells the story of her emotional journey to becoming a WNBA champion, WNBA MVP, and three-time Olympic gold medalist and offers a testament to her character and will.

Tamika Catchings has shown what it means to have the heart of a champion on the court her entire career.
