SOCCER DREAMS by LEAH LAUBER
Leah Lauber's true adventure following the U.S. Women's
National Soccer Team, as a fan and 12-year old Junior
Reporter for the St. Petersburg (FL) Times, as the Team
prepares for, and ultimately wins, the history-making 1999
Women's World Cup!
The U.S. Women's National Soccer Team proved that dreams DO
come true, IF you love what you do, AND you work really
hard at it! My unlikely-but-true story following the Team
further proves that dreams come true . . .
The 1999 Women's World Cup is widely regarded as a
milestone in women's sports and "Soccer Dreams" takes the
reader on a journey any sports fan could only dream about -
not only meeting her heroes at their finest moment, but
interviewing them for one of the country's best newspapers.
Leah's incredible adventure takes the reader to games,
training sessions, into the locker room and under the press
tent after the ultimate victory over China.
Illustrated with more than 200 color photos throughout the
book, "Soccer Dreams" will inspire readers of all ages to
follow their own dreams, using not only the example of the
National Team, but in a much smaller way, Leah's story as
she overcomes setbacks and obstacles to witness sports
