Olympic gold medalist and figure skating champion Nathan Chen delivers a powerful and inspirational debut picture book about facing your fears and finding the joy in sports, no matter the outcome.

Wei has loved ice skating ever since his first visit to the rink. He loves gliding across the ice, taking flight on jumps, and moving with the music—there’s nothing else like it! Now Wei’s first big competition is coming up. He’s very excited and he’s been training hard. But what if he doesn’t win? The nearer the big day gets, the more anxious Wei feels, and the more mistakes he begins to make on the ice. With help from Mom, can Wei find a way to handle his nerves? And what would it feel like to skate without the pressure of winning?

Author’s note. Full-color illustrations were created with paint, paper collage, and digital tools.
