"Young readers' edition"--Book jacket.
"In this heartwarming and candid memoir, US national soccer team goalkeeper Tim Howard does something he would never do on a soccer field: he drops his guard. Howard opens up for the first time about how a hyperactive kid from New Jersey with Tourette Syndrome defied the odds to become one of the world's premier goalkeepers. Howard managed to keep his condition in check well enough to be drafted by Major League Soccer right out of high school. After a successful seventeen-year professional soccer career, Howard became an overnight star during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. His heroic performance in goal for the United States against Belgium, in which he saved an astonishing fifteen shots--the most for any goalkeeper in a World Cup game--made him a household name as well as a trending internet meme. In the course of 120 minutes, Howard went from a player known mainly by soccer fans to an American icon, loved by millions for his dependability, daring, and humility. In this uplifting memoir adapted for young readers, Howard shares his remarkable journey from a challenging childhood in which he was raised by a single mother who instilled in him a love of sports and a devout Christian faith that helped him deal with the onset of Tourette's in fifth grade."--Publisher's description.

"An inspirational tale of love and faith, From Generation to Generation tells the true story of one Jewish woman as she struggles to navigate the difficulties of interfaith dating--and its inspiration behind her surprising religious reawakening. Jane Larkin knew the statistics: those belonging to interfaith households are more likely to lose their beliefs, neglect regular worship, and raise nonreligious children. All of this and more spurs her to marry a man whom she doesn't love, but who nevertheless shares her faith. Their marriage quickly crumbles, and Jane finds herself falling in love with a non-Jewish man. Before she knows it, Jane commits to the exact thing she had hoped to avoid: an interfaith marriage. As the newlyweds attempt to navigate their respective religions, Jane embarks on a journey that brings her face-to-face with her deepest fears--and a religious skeleton in her genealogical closet that will change everything."--Back cover.
