My coffee sat turning cold as I became absorbed in Abby’s journey from high school soccer to the U.S. Women’s National Team, and scoring a world-record number of international goals throughout her career. Abby shares a frank and deeply humanizing discussion of the events that shaped her along the way. She grapples with addiction, coming to terms with LGBT identity in a small suburban town, and — since her recent retirement — discovering for the first time who she is outside of soccer. Her resilience and honesty will resonate with those seeking inspiration and encouragement.
