Reviews

"[A] natural role model for teens. . . tween and teen soccer fans, particularly those who watched the recent U.S. women's victory in the World Cup, will be eager to get their hands on anything with Morgan's name on the cover."--Booklist
"Author of a best-selling middle-grade sports series, the Kicks, the Olympic gold-medal-winning soccer star Morgan shares her own life story in this YA memoir. Morgan experiences challenges--unanticipated changes in coaching staff, balancing academics and sports, and riding out injuries--but she does so with a positive attitude in a way that makes her a natural role model for teens, particularly teen athletes."--BookList
"This inspirational memoir from a soccer champion and Olympic gold medalist will appeal to sports fans and nonathletes alike. . . A great addition to memoir and sports collections in public and high school libraries."--School Library Journal
