More than seven million girls now play soccer in America, Mia Hamm has become a role model for young girls striving to be the best, and Sports Illustrated chose the U.S. Women's World Cup Soccer Team as their "Athlete of the Year" 1999.

In The Beautiful Game, author Jonathan Littman tells the amazing story of Santa Rosa's Thunder, a former rag-tag team of girls who -- through the discipline and determination of their coach -- went on to become champions in soccer and in life. Packed with moving insights into the psychology of adolescent girls, The Beautiful Game dramatically shows us -- through the prism of one remarkable team -- how soccer can affect the hearts and minds of young women.
