In this heartwarming and candid memoir, US national soccer team goalkeeper Tim Howard opens up for the first time about how a hyperactive kid from New Jersey with Tourette Syndrome defied the odds to become one of the world's premier goalkeepers.

After a successful seventeen-year professional soccer career, Howard became an overnight star during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. His heroic performance in the game for the United States against Belgium, in which he saved an astonishing fifteen shots-the most for any goalkeeper in a World Cup game-made him a household name as well as a trending internet meme. In the course of 120 minutes, Howard went from a player known mainly by soccer fans to an American icon, loved by millions for his dependability, daring, and humility.

In this uplifting memoir adapted for young readers and now in paperback, Howard shares his remarkable journey from a challenging childhood in which he was raised by a single mother who instilled in him a love of sports and a deep faith that helped him deal with the onset of Tourette Syndrome in fifth grade.

The book includes a glossary and a full-color insert.
