A Memoir of HopeBook - 2012
The goalkeeper for the U.S. women's national soccer team reveals how she has repeatedly triumphed over adversity, from her childhood in Richland, Washington, to the realization of her dreams of being a world-class soccer player.
The Glass Castle meets A League of Their Own in Solo, a candid and moving memoir about family, loss, and reconciliation from Hope Solo, the supremely talented, headline-making goalkeeper for the U.S. women’s national soccer team.
During the 2011 Women’s World Cup, Solo became an idol, role model, and sex symbol to a new generation of young American sports enthusiasts, inspiring the kind of intense devotion not seen since the days of Mia Hamm.
An Olympic gold medalist and arguably America’s sexiest athlete, Hope has been featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated (twice), in ESPN: The Magazine, and as a contestant on the hit ABC television show Dancing with the Stars, and her poignant, compelling, and profoundly inspiring personal history will score big with her legion of fans.
The headline-making goalkeeper for the U.S. women's national soccer team, who thrives on competition and is driven to win, reveals how she has repeatedly triumphed over adversity - a story that holds lessons and insight for both her legions of fan and everyone. 30,000 first printing.
