I chose this book from a course list for an undergrad liberal arts paper. I grew up playing soccer and thought, "I love soccer, and there is most likely something deeper to this story but it beats reading a biography or historical event novel." I very pleasantly surprised! This tugged on my heart strings, brought a smile to my face, a tear to my eye, and had me disgusted and appalled by various people/events throughout the book. I just finished the audio book while I was waiting for the paperback to arrive. Very well written. This story is honest, horrible and wonderful all at the same time. Many opportunities to step back and wonder: Do I think like that? How do I feel about this? What would I do if that happened?
