Abstract:

Big Girl in the Middle is the story of the gangly girl who turned into one of the world's great beauties. At seven years old, Gabby was already five feet tall. By the time she was eighteen, she was a professional model. Big Girl is the personal story of Gabby's eventful and difficult childhood and of how she took the athletic path to self-discovery and success. Loosely structured around the volleyball season, Big Girl takes a look at how she maintains focus and balance.

Without losing sight of her aspirations and goals, both professional and personal. Gabby, along with journalist and novelist Karen Karbo, tells of the successes and failures, the glories and pain of being a female athlete. While she accepts and even plays up her sex-symbol status, Gabby works hard at being a respected athlete, displaying her wit and intelligence at every turn. She accomplishes these things by tapping into her aggressive, competitive side without losing.

Sight of her emotional center or her femininity. Gabrielle Reece is an inspiration to all girls and women who want to become the heroes of their own lives.
