Reviews

"One Life makes it clear that Rapinoe's greatest accomplishments may ultimately come away from the soccer pitch. She's a new kind of American hero." -San Francisco Chronicle

"One Life will inspire readers to go out and leave their mark on the world no matter how scary it is or how uncomfortable they may feel in the process." -PopSugar

"Rapinoe's 'signature pose' from the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup is synonymous to the feeling we got when finishing this book: heart full, arms wide and ready to take up space in this world." -USA Today

"An invigorating read that's incredibly hard to put down. . . . One Life is an outstanding narrative of an exemplary life. Megan Rapinoe's many accomplishments on the pitch are celebrated but what takes center stage is how she uses those moments to further the causes she believes in. It's that combination of transcendent athletic accomplishment and iconoclastic social justice activism that makes Rapinoe unique as an athlete-and now as an author." -Out Sports

"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

"Essential for all readers. Rapinoe shares much wisdom throughout, and her words are a call for action to continue to fight societal inequalities." -Library Journal
