Alex did a great job writing this book and I loved the inspirational paragraph at the end of each chapter. I now think how I can relate to the paragraph. Right now I'm reading all the young readers soccer biography and so far I've read: Forward, My Story - Abby Wambach, All Heart - Carli Lloyd, The Keeper, The Unguarded Story of Tim Howard - Tim Howard, and Breakaway, Beyond the Goal - Alex Morgan (this copy). This book by Alex Morgan was my favorite. She no only tells her experiences but give detail that none of the others have given. Her book is not just about her story but gives inspiration for young athletes. Also this book is fairly recent (published: January 2015, Updated after the 2015 world cup) compared to the others and having a longer impressive 300+ pages. Also I loved the photos of her when she was little. Not all authors can include those so I think that was special. Alex is the youngest of all the books I've read but has the biggest story.
Thanks Alex Morgan for the awesome book (I wear jersey #13 because of you)
Please Note: That I am in no way affilated with Alex Morgan. Amazon, the editors or publishers. I am not payed to write this review and this I am completly honest.
Written to inspire and support kids to dream and work towards those dreams.

Probably this is one of very few books that written mostly positively. No space for drama or hate.
In my opinion since the author tried to stay away from drama/negativity the real struggles she faced
in her journey may been missing.
