Summary
  • Chronicles the story of how serial sexual predator Larry Nassar got away with decades of abuse before a team of brave women banded together to stop him
  • For decades, in a small-town gym in Michigan, Larry Nassar honed his manipulations on generations of aspiring gymnasts. Kids from the neighborhood. Girls with hopes of a college scholarship. Athletes and parents with a dream. Pesta describes Nassar's increasingly bold predations through the years, recounts their warning calls unheeded, and demonstrates their resiliency in the face of a nightmare. -- adapted from jacket
