Publisher's Summary

From the celebrated star of the US Women's National Soccer Team, an inspiring, uplifting, and candid memoir of how she got there.

In 2015, the US Women's National Soccer Team won its first FIFA championship in 16 years, culminating in an epic final game that electrified soccer fans around the world. It featured a gutsy, brilliant performance by team captain and midfielder Carli Lloyd, who made history that day, scoring a hat trick - three goals in one game - during the first 16 minutes.

But there was a time when Carli almost quit the sport. In 2003 she was struggling, her soccer career at a crossroads. Then she found a trusted trainer, James Galanis, who saw in Carli a player with raw talent, skill, and a great dedication to the game. What Carli lacked were fitness, mental toughness, and character. Together they set to work, training day and night, fighting, grinding it out. No one worked harder than Carli. And no one believed in her more than James. Despite all the naysayers, the times she was benched, moments when her self-confidence took a nosedive, she succeeded in becoming one of the best players in the world.

This candid reflection on a remarkable turnaround will take listeners inside the women's national team and inside the head of an athlete who willed herself to perform at the highest levels of competition.

    "Should've just read the book."

    I enjoyed the story but the narrator was AWFUL. Literally sounded like Siri was reading it in semi monotone. Completely ruined it.

    "That narrator is awful"

    He book was okay. I am a big fan of Carli Lloyd and I have been since she first started playing for the USWNT. I still like her but have a totally different perspective on how she is as a person. I wish she would have narrated her own book.

    "Honest look at the USWNT"

    Honest look at the USWNT & the climb to the top. Wish Carli narrated the whole book.

    "This is not a book for audio"

    It sounded like it was read by Siri....so painful to listen to. The story itself is soul-less. It's a story about the her ascendancy while whining about how everyone is wrong and she has to overcome herself. She's a great player but there is nothing here I would recommend my daughter reading. It sounds like she's a bad teammate

    I'm a fan of her but not this book. Abby Wambach's book is amazing
