On the Pitch

Not only is this month the start odf summer reading, but it's time again for one of my favorite event: the Women's World Cup. This year is host to the 8th annual tournament, and it all kicks off June 7th. I've followed soccer for so many years, so I wanted to celebrate the tournament and share some titles-some for all ages, and for all levels of soccer knowledge. Don't worry, you don't need to be able to explain (or understand) the offside rule to like these books. So keep you eyes on the books (and the game) and enjoy!
