Narrator Gina Rogers is outstanding in this engaging listen about the rise of the U.S. Women's National (soccer) Team. The audiobook chronicles the team's evolution since the 1999 World Cup through stories about and interviews with the original trailblazers. Listeners will hear about well-known players like Mia Hamm and Julie Foudy and about players and coaches they may be less familiar with. Rogers evokes the nostalgia of looking back and the triumph of the team's success. There is also a behind-the-scenes look at the game and all that comes with teamwork and sisterhood. The book touches on off-the-field issues like LGBTQIA+ rights, social justice efforts, sexual harassment, and the fight for equal pay. K.S.M. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2022]
