Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Linnea Hendrickson
Top U.S. women's soccer player Mia Hamm is the subject of this biography. Christopher gives few details about Hamm's life off the field, mainly telling about her introduction to soccer as a toddler, a little about her friends and family, including her much-loved adopted brother and his battle with leukemia. Her marriage gets one sentence, and her school and college life outside of soccer a few more. Most of the book consists of detailed accounts of key moments in important games in Hamm's career. Because of this it will probably appeal mainly to soccer fans more than it will to the general reader. The book contains a table of Hamm's career highlights and her college, national team, and Olympic statistics. There is no index or bibliography. There's just enough information here to make the reader want to know more about Hamm as a person.

    Sokker

    I love soccer so much. My dad is a soccer coach. I play left mid( best spot on the field). If we girls like soccer thank mia for what she did. She showed the boys that girls are so much better. (So true). We girls can beat the boys in soccer any day any time and any where! Bring it boys i am so ready to win and show you who is the boss! Go girls! Girls we can be tuff to. Dont let the boys out shine us! We have so many more moves to do. (Flick the hair and put the soccer ball underneath their feet. Trust me it does work). Pass and go and shoot another goal. But dont be to hard. We dont want the boys to look so bad!!! SOKKERGIRL13
