ROLE MODEL: Gabeira''s irrepressible spirit and bravery show kids what''s possible if you dream boldly and believe in yourself. In 2018 Gabeira won the first Women''s XXL Biggest Wave Award for the biggest wave ever surfed by a woman, and then broke her own record in 2020 by surfing the biggest wave of the year-male or female-measured at 73.5 feet.A SURFING FAIRY TALE: Heavily inspired by her own childhood experiences, Gabeira invites young readers into her world in this uniquely told autobiography with a fictionalized, fairy tale approach.WOMEN IN SPORTS: There''s a lack of picture books on female athletes, and Gabeira''s achievements prove there''s no limit to what women can accomplish in sports. Doubted and ostracized by the traditionally male-dominated sport yet motivated by the female surfers who came before her, Gabeira defied naysayers to bust records and gender expectations.OVERCOMING ADVERSITY: After nearly dying after attempting a massive surf, three spine surgeries and six years of rehabilitation later, Gabeira returned to the same waters that almost killed her and conquered them with determination-reminding us that true strength means getting back up again after you fall.ASTHMA REPRESENTATION: Both Maya in the story and Gabeira herself experienced childhood asthma, and were able to turn this physical challenge into a strength.WIDE AUDIENCE: Gabeira''s personal story has already received lots of media attention, but even for those previously unfamiliar with her, the book''s relatable themes of facing your fears, believing in yourself, and following your dreams will resonate.LIGHT ENVIRONMENTAL HOOK: Gabeira''s deep respect for the natural world shines through, and she''s a passionate advocate for restoring our oceans.VIBRANT ART: Kaulitzki, the illustrator of Sisters First, has a rich, warm palette and commercial flair that invites readers in.
