There was a time when the author, the goalie for the U.S. National Women's Soccer Team, almost lost it all after complaining about being benched in the 2007 World Cup. She's come a long way since then, reclaiming her place on the team, winning titles, and appearing on "Dancing with the Stars." Narrator Christina Delaine has a friendly, down-home voice that is well suited to the all-American tone of the book. Delaine is able to get to the heart of Solo's story and varies her reading to accentuate the personal nature of the book. Delaine, however, doesn't keep the story moving. She focuses too much on the emotions, which slows her down and results in her losing vocal energy. This sometimes diminishes the book's impact.
