9780062387585: The Keeper: The Unguarded Story of Tim Howard Young Readers' Edition

In this heartwarming and candid memoir, US national soccer team goalkeeper Tim 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.

After a successful seventeen-year professional soccer career, Howard became an overnight star during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. His heroic performance in the game 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 and now in paperback, 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 deep faith that helped him deal with the onset of Tourette Syndrome in fifth grade.

The book includes a glossary and a full-color insert.

From the Back Cover:

Meet Tim Howard—American icon and soccer sensation

Tim became an overnight hero during the summer 2014 World Cup in Brazil, saving an astonishing fifteen shots on goal—the most for any goalkeeper in a World Cup game. But what most people don't know about Tim is his remarkable journey to becoming a worldwide soccer star.

In this down-to-earth memoir, Tim shares his incredible story. He recounts his rise to World Cup stardom, the challenges he faced both on and off the field in getting to the top, and the enduring faith that sustained him. For the first time ever, Tim drops his guard and opens up about how a hyperactive kid from New Jersey with Tourette Syndrome defied the odds to become one of the world's premier goalkeepers.

About the Author:

He previously played for the MetroStars in Major League Soccer and for the storied Manchester United. In July 2014, he broke the record for most saves (fifteen) in a World Cup game. He also works as a soccer broadcaster on NBC's weekly coverage of the EPL.
