Lucky Girl

Lessons on Overcoming Odds and Building a Limitless Future

Sprinter, long jumper, and Paralympian Scout Bassett shares the lessons she’s learned battling the toughest challenges facing young women today.
As an infant in China, Scout Bassett survived a fire that took her right leg. She spent the next seven years in an orphanage before being adopted and whisked away to the United States, where she felt foreign in every way. 

Though she defied the odds and became a gold medalist and world-record holder, Scout fought against adversity her entire life—and mostly off the track. As a person with a disability, a minority, and a woman in America, she’s struggled in a culture that can make anyone—no matter who you are—feel like an outsider—an other.
In Lucky Girl Scout shares ten lessons she’s learned to help readers overcome some of the most difficult challenges in life today. With vulnerability, humor, and warmth, she addresses issues of identity, loneliness, image, purpose, and high expectations, among others, and offers advice for how to face them.

Scout began her journey to embrace who she is—past and all—by never forgetting where she comes from or who she is. With this guidebook on adversity and life, learn how to make peace with your past, own your identity, and create your own luck.

"Scout lives at the intersection of being a female in sports, a minority, and having a limb difference. If anyone understands overcoming adversity, it’s Scout. Lucky Girl is a guidebook for girls and women everywhere who have ever felt like an ‘other.’ This book is going to change the way you view yourself and the world around you."—Tunde Oyeneyin, New York Times Best-Selling Author, Motivational Speaker, and Peloton Instructor
"As a fellow athlete, I have always been inspired by stories of resilience and determination. Scout Bassett’s Lucky Girl is one such story that left me awestruck and motivated.
