Transcript of Hope Solo: My Story 2013

by: Hope Solo Hope Solo: My Story Genre Theme The genre of this book is non-fiction. It is an autobiography about Hope Solo, the goalie for the U.S. Women's National Team. Hope Solo talks about her life and everything she has ever been through from start to finish. The time span in this book goes from 1981, when Hope was born, to 2012, when her team was in the London Olympics. Setting The protagonist is Hope Amelia Solo. She was born in Washington on July 30, 1981. She has one brother named Marcus, who is older than her. Hope started playing soccer when she was very young and continued to play as she got older. When she was young, the position she played was forward. She also sometimes played goalie if her team needed one. When Hope was thirteen years old, she tried out for ODP (Olympic Development Program), which is a very high level soccer team. She made it, but she was on the team as the goalkeeper. She was placed on the U-16 team as their goalkeeper and saved every shot. Her coaches soon realized that she was a great goalkeeper and would excel very soon. Protagonist The antagonist of this book is everyone who thought Hope couldn't do it. Hope didn't have many people on her side believing in her. Her mom didn't pay much attention to her, nor her dad, who walked out on the family when Hope was young. Hope's coaches didn't think she'd make it this far, especially as a goalie. Not even her college soccer coaches thought she could do it, they didn't think she was strong enough, fast enough, and they didn't think she was ready. Hope had to prove all those people wrong, and she did. If you look at Hope Solo today, she is a very successful person playing on the U.S. National Team as the goalie. Antagonist Level: 5.7
Points: 8 Sydney Ladendorf http://www.brandsoftheworld.com/logo/london-olympics-2012 The main setting of this book is in Richland, Washington, where Hope and her family lived. When Hope grew older, she went to college at the University of Washington, which is in Seattle. She then was recruited to be on the U.S. team and had to move to Chula Vista, California to be with her team. After that, Hope went all around the world for soccer. But even with all the traveling and all the new people she met, she never forgot about her family in Washington. http://www.decadeawards.com/Washington-Football.html Conflict The conflict of the book is external, person versus nature. In February, when Hope Solo dives to make a save, she gets caught on the post. She couldn't feel her arm, so she looked down and her arm was split open. All of the muscles and tendons were hanging out, you could also see the bone and the fat in her forearm. She was rushed off the field and taken to a nearby hospital. She had to get stitched up by the doctor, but by this time of next year, her arm would be healed. That injury obviously set her back. For one year she was forced to sit on the sidelines and watch her team play and practice. She made an amazing recovery after many months of physical therapy and was able to play again. http://www.portlandtimbers.com/news/2013/01/national-womens-soccer-league-announces-list-us-canadian-and-mexican-national-team-play http://www.dreamstime.com/royalty-free-stock-photography-soccer-goalkeeper-gloves-image18475307 http://www.zimbio.com/pictures/wHvLzwnBRin/Ireland+v+United+States/jl2JVcpAa3M/Hope+Solo The theme of Hope Solo: My Story is even if people don't believe in you, you should keep going. No one believed in Hope, but she made it. If people think you can't do something, you have to keep going and prove them wrong. Never give up on your dreams. Hope's dream was to become a professional soccer player, and she did. She's very successful now, and to all those people who thought she couldn't do it, look at her now. Keep dreaming, because dreams do happen. http://www.zygosoccerreport.com/2011_07_01_archive.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Soccer_ball.svg http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13624667-hope-solo
