Seattle Sounders goalkeeper Hope Solo has been the U.S. national team goalie since 2000. In 2011, she played a key role in getting the Americans to the FIFA Women's World Cup finals. On Dancing With the Stars, she was a semi-finalist; she's a two-time Sports Illustrated cover girl who been called the sexiest woman in sports. All of that is good news, but it forms only part of the appeal of this remarkable memoir. The story of Solo's family life alone can engulf our interest: She gained her love of soccer from her father, an often homeless Vietnam vet who was once convicted of embezzlement. An early reader described Solo as The Glass Castle meets A League of Their Own; now in trade paperback and NOOK Book.
