Description


Learn all about one of the top stars of the U.S. Women’s National Team in this action-packed book


Megan Rapinoe captured global attention in the 2019 Women’s World Cup, not only with her amazing skills—she won both the Golden Ball and the Golden Boot—but also with her strong commitment to social justice. Megan Rapinoe traces her rise to stardom, from her childhood in a soccer crazy Northern California family, to her outstanding college career at the University of Portland, to her co-captaincy of the dominant U.S. women’s team.


Like all the volumes in the best-selling World Soccer Legends series, this one is full of the exciting on-field shots, key stats, and little-known facts that true soccer fans love.

Praise For…


These books are a terrific soccer resource for kids! They combine the best of world soccer along with history, geography and a glimpse at what it’s like growing up as a young soccer player in another country. Soccer is truly a global language and these books help American kids speak it fluently. What a great opportunity for young soccer players to learn about their heroes and the legendary clubs of the world. These books are engaging and fun!
— Lynn Berling-Manuel, American Youth Soccer Organization (AYSO)

These books in the World Soccer Legends [series], newly translated into English, will appeal mainly to young hardcore soccer fans. Such readers cannot get enough of the action photographs, copious statistics, and player profiles that fill the books.
