The Kicks #1 - Saving the TeamFrom 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist, Alex Morgan, comes a new middle-grade series called The Kicks. The football (er, soccer in America) star is currently a member of the National Women’s Soccer League‘s Portland Thorns FC. Saving the Team, Morgan’s first published book, is about Devon, a new girl in town, and her friends on the Berryvale Bruisers (soccer team). The Bruisers are pretty terrible, but hopefully Devon came make them better – maybe even good enough to beat the Pinewood Panthers and win it all.

Kicks #1: Saving the Team
will be released on Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

As Morgan graduated with a degree in Political Economy from UC Berkeley, I assume there will be some seriously critical fiduciary elements discussed regarding youth soccer in middle America. Or maybe it’ll just be a fun book for one of my kids to read.
