Some people would argue that the most beautiful sports taking place in the Olympic Games are the women's figure skating and gymnastics events. In Little Girls in Pretty Boxes, Joan Ryan paints a bleak picture of the training, coercion, and even abuse that goes on in the attempt to create world class competitive athletes. After you read this book, you'll never look at these elite athletes in quite the same way.
