The Team

How a Brave Group of Women Shook the Gymnastics World, Brought Down a Predator, and Won Justice for Their Community

From an award-winning and respected investigative journalist, the inside story of how serial predator Larry Nassar got away with abusing hundreds of gymnasts for decades–and how a team of brave women, activists, and lawyers banded together to bring him down

Larry Nassar has been called one of the worst sexual predators in history. For years, the families in Lansing, Michigan admired and trusted him. He was a longtime doctor at Michigan State University, while also serving as the physician for the U.S. Olympic gymnastics team. Parents left their daughters in his care, grateful for the attention of this renowned doctor. He became a mentor and confidante to aspiring young gymnasts with big dreams.

In the wake of abuse revelations, athletes are asking why they weren’t protected. Victims want to know why they weren’t believed. Parents are questioning why authorities didn’t stop him when they had the chance. How did this happen? And how can we prevent it from occurring again? Drawing on exclusive interviews, this book unveils the behind-the-scenes story on the scandal that riveted and devastated the world of elite sports–and the small community where it all began.

This is the narrative of how these women found their voice and came together, refusing to let the abuse of their past define their future. Their experience carries an important message for readers amid the ever-growing #MeToo movement: There is power in your voice.
