Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 5-10-This memoir was adapted from Solo: A Memoir of Hope (Harper, 2012). Starting from her childhood, the athlete gives an account of the difficulties she has overcome-her father's absenteeism and eventual homelessness, poverty, a difficult stepfather. Solo used soccer as a means of escape and eventually came to play professionally, competing in both the Olympics and the World Cup. As the years went by, she built positive relationships with her family and repaired her relationship with her father, who served as a source of inspiration for her as she both struggled and succeeded. The main tension in terms of Solo's career, and the turning point of the memoir, was when she spoke out publicly against getting benched during the 2007 World Cup. She faced harsh team backlash for the next year, even though her comments were mostly directed at her coach at the time. Still, despite a shoulder injury and being ostracized by her teammates (which eventually dissipated after a new coach was brought in), she persevered and helped lead the team to victory. Soccer fans will enjoy the frequent and vivid descriptions of intense play, but even readers who are not familiar with the game will be able to share in Solo's enthusiasm for the sport. Most importantly, her story underscores the importance of the support of her family, albeit an unconventional one. A good choice for students who need to a biography on a strong, influential woman.-Rita Meade, Brooklyn Public Library, NYα(c) Copyright 2011.

My 8 year old is a goalie for our soccer team and she loved hearing about Hope's experience good an bad. It shows that the heros are the ones that not just go through bad times in their lives but get through them.

This book was the best book I have ever read! It was very inspiring for a goalie,and for people that are not goalies. I really love Hope Solo because she does not try to appear to be some one she is not. I think that this is really well written, it made me cry just because the author really shows Hopes feeling.

This is a great story just needs to have more details and better writing yet I enjoyed it. Hope Solo didnt have an easy life. It is fun reading about her. Yet one more problem Hope doesnt know really what her father has been doing.She think its okay just forgets about it. Her father has been bad.
