Review by School Library Journal Reviews

Gr 8 Up—Foudy, two-time Olympic gold medalist, two-time World Cup champion, and former captain of the U.S. women's national soccer team, has written a guide to help young women determine their personal leadership style. Foudy gathered a diverse team of women she interviewed in casual conversations she dubbed "#socktalks." The group included Good Morning America cohost Robin Roberts, soccer star Mia Hamm, Irish scientist Sophie Healy-Thow, and Paralympic Games medalist Tatyana McFadden, among others. Chapters unfold with a conversational tone as Foudy leads the listener through developing a positive self-image and various leadership skills. Older teens will most likely roll their eyes at Foudy's corny sense of humor. VERDICT Although the book is intended to help young women find their own style, it skews strongly toward extroverts, and non-athletes may be put off by the abundance of sports analogies. Teams and clubs, though, could benefit from using the audio as a guide for developing confidence and character.—Lisa Hubler, Charles F.
