“My Sergei: A Love Story” by Ekaterina Gordeeva

5 stars

During the Winter Olympics earlier this year, NBC did a special on the famous Russian figure skating pair team Sergei Grinkov and Katia Gordeeva. The piece intrigued me, so this summer I took the time to read Katia’s biography. Gordeeva chronicles how she and Sergei were paired as a team at a young age, how they rose to be the best in their field, and how as they grew up, they fell in love off the ice. It’s a fascinating look at the world of figure skating and a beautiful love story that was tragically cut short. This biography will pull at your heart strings and lead you to spend countless hours watching Gordeeva and Grinkov performances on YouTube.
