Get inspired to be your best—in sports and in life—with this uplifting memoir from star soccer player and Olympic gold medalist Alex Morgan that includes eight pages of full-color photos!
As a talented and successful female athlete, Alex Morgan is a role model to thousands of girls who want to be their best, not just in soccer, but in other sports and in life. The story of her path to success, from playing in the 2011 Women’s World Cup, to winning gold in the 2012 London Olympics, to ranking as one of the National Team’s top scorers, will inspire everyone who reads it.
From her beginnings with the American Youth Soccer Organization to her key role in the 2015 Women’s World Cup, Alex shares the details that made her who she is today: a fantastic role model and athlete who proudly rocks a pink headband.
So I seriously love Alex and her book and that’s why I gave it 5 stars. I loved it so much. But when I bought it on iBooks it only gave me 57 chapters and in the real book it’s has 61. I just felt that worth mentioning.
Alex's book is a fun and easy read with a consistent theme of goal setting, hard work and self confidence. She is the full package as a role model celeb-athlete and the books tells her story well. Geared to teens but interesting and relevant to all genders and ages. Well done Alex!
my favorite sport is soccer. i really want to do something big with it. i only read the sample but it did change me and i loved it. thank u so much for writing it!!!!
