Hope Solo: My Story 2013
Transcript of Hope Solo: My Story 2013
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
