This newly released updated version of this award-winning novel by former New York Times figure skating reporter Lisa Luciano is a combination of fiction based on her experiences and factual information about the sport. Written as a period piece set during the heyday of skating celebrity, the 1990s, it reveals some of the scandals of the time couched in a page-turner of a mystery.
The book also includes resources for those wishing to understand more about this glamourous sport.
Lisa’s journalism had a major impact on the figure skating world. Her first article showed how unfair it was that professional skaters could not compete in the Olympic games. By the next Olympic competition this rule had been changed and the entire system revamped to eliminate the concept of amateur vs. professional thus proving the power of the pen.
