About the Author
Megan Rapinoe is an American professional soccer player. As a member of the US Women's national soccer team, she helped win the 2015 and 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup tournaments and a gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics. A co-captain of the team since 2018, she was named the Best FIFA Women's Player in 2019, and was awarded the Golden Boot.
"Megan Rapinoe isn't breaking the glass ceiling-- she is shattering it, all while sharing her stage with those on the margins. She is a real-life superhero, a coconspirator to the oppressed, who is as tenacious off the field as she is on the field. This is an inspiring moment for a powerful force in social justice." --Patrisse Khan-Cullors, cofounder of Black Lives Matter; New York Times bestselling coauthor of When They Call You a Terrorist; joint recipient of the Sydney Peace Prize "Megan Rapinoe's One Life is an incredible self-portrait of a new way to be public and female: to be able to enjoy and celebrate how extraordinary one is while also being attuned to the needs of others. It's a manifesto of how to have a beating heart while also being a beast on the field." --Natalie Portman, Academy Award winner; co-owner of Angel City "Uplifting. . . . A compelling testimony for equality in sports with a resounding message of hope." --Booklist, starred review "Rapinoe's passion for inclusion and equality shines throughout this appealing book, and her hard-won take on the intersection of sports and activism isn't to be missed." --Publishers Weekly "An inspiring memoir that will thrill soccer fans as well as social justice activists." --Kirkus
