I love action sports as my favourite past time. Being a girl i loved to read this book, this one is truly for girls who love action sports like me.


Sports that girls should pursue

Posted by Shrishti Chakraborty on 13/01/2013

The book is about that girls should pursue sports as their monthly routine. In the book there is the information about the packing, clothing, the things you need to the particilar sport etc. But it is a fun book for girls as it is all about the sports which girls like and ther are also some fascinating reveiws from other girls.
