    This book is a good because book. My favorite part is when Hope cuts her arm on the goal post. Her teammates don't care about her and keep playing the game. The saddest part is when her dad dies and she has to go be a goalkeeper in a Chinese tournament. Another thing that was hard for hope is when the coach made then go round the room asking one thing they didn't like about Hope. This is a good book because it talks about Hope's child ldhood people didn't know about her. This book is full of Hope's challenges in becoming who she is today. If you look up to Hope Solo this is a good book for you.If out wan to learn something new about a very great goalie, read this book. Hope Solo is an inspirational image to soccer.
