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:

In this heartwarming and candid memoir, Tim Howard does something he would never do on a soccer field: he drops his guard. As fiercely protective about his privacy as he is guarding the goal for the US national team and for Everton in the English Premier League, Howard opens up for the first time about how a hyperactive kid from New Jersey with Tourette’s 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 this past summer in Brazil. His heroic performance in goal for the United States against Belgium, in which he saved an astonishing sixteen 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 aficionados to an American icon, revered by millions for his dependability, daring, and humility.

In this uplifting memoir now 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.

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.
