This book was a disappointment. The writing was mediocre, and left me with a poor impression of the author. She comes across as arrogant and lacking in self-awareness. Don't waste your time.

An honest look into the trials of one of the tallest titans to play the sport of soccer. Abby writes with candor, honestly showing the reader how she became who she is; and how she wants to move forward after professional soccer.
