Some would argue that Brandi Chastain single-handedly made women's soccer popular. Few people knew much about the best female soccer players in the world after the 1999 Women's World Cup finals. That's when Brandi scored a goal on a penalty kick after the second overtime of the U.S. versus China match and struck her famous pose. She was photographed on her knees, mouth wide open, eyes closed, fists in the air, wearing a black sports bra and white soccer shorts. Her celebration pose was featured on magazines and newspapers around the world. After that, Brandi became a household name. Breeze through this book and discover how Brandi became the fabulous athlete and wonderful person she is today.

Grade 2-4–These slim biographies cover the childhoods and early fame of these young soccer stars. All have a large, bold font and mostly short declarative sentences and contain a multitude of colorful action photographs. However, all too often the captions include the word here as in here she celebrates... or here he holds..., which makes the texts stiff and redundant. The lists of further reading cite recent, age-appropriate magazine articles. The chronology in Chastain differs from the text, which may confuse readers. In Donovan, the author mentions that when the athlete scored a goal, he would do something crazy, but the author neglects to elucidate any further. While reluctant readers will find these titles appealing, their flaws render them serviceable at best. A note in each book states that it has not been authorized or endorsed by the biographee.–Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA
