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. 1.

I believe that we will win. In the summer of 2014, Tim Howard became an overnight sensation after more than 10 years as one of America´s leading professional soccer players. His record-breaking 15 saves for the United States national team against Belgium in the World Cup electrified a nation that had only recently woken up to the Beautiful Game after decades of hibernation. An estimated TV audience of 21 million viewers in the United States - larger than those of the NBA and NHL finals - watched Howard´s heroic performance against the heavily favored Belgians in which he repelled shots with his hands, feet, legs, knees, and even his signature long beard. Suddenly an athlete who had toiled in relative anonymity for much of his career became the star of his own Internet meme (´´Things Tim Howard Could Save´´: from Janet Jackson´s ´´wardrobe malfunction´´ to the Titanic) and fielded personal calls from the likes of President Barack Obama (´´You guys did us proud.... I don´t know how you are going to survive the mobs when you come back home, man. You´ll have to shave your beard so they don´t know who you are´´). In this inspiring and candid memoir, the beloved US and Everton goalkeeper finally allows himself to do something that he would never do on the 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 greatest American keepers in history. He recalls his childhood, being raised by a single mother who instilled in him a love of all sports - he was also a standout high school basketball player - and a devout faith that helped him cope with a disorder that manifested itself with speech and facial tics, compulsive behavior, and extreme sensitivity to light, noise, and touch. The Keeper is also a chronicle of the personal sacrifices he´s made for his career, including the ultimate dissolution of Howard 1. Language: English. Narrator: J. D. Jackson.

No one wants to play second fiddle in love. Veronica ´´Ronnie” Lukas has one dream: playing violin with the New York Philharmonic. She´ll do whatever she can to hide her dyslexia and inability to read music, because nothing, not even sexy and talented Scott Grossman, will stand in her way. Since he first tucked a violin under his chin, Scott´s tics caused by Tourette´s Syndrome quieted. His talent has thrust him into the harsh spotlight, becoming a reluctant poster child for living with Tourette´s. When Scott wins first chair of a small regional orchestra, Ronnie begrudgingly accepts second. She wants to hate the humble man who is disarmingly open about his disability. Instead, she falls for his heavenly music - and toe-curling kisses. Scott is smitten with the brilliant woman who doesn´t treat him with kid gloves, although he wishes she didn´t hide her dyslexia from the world. There´s only one spot open in the New York Philharmonic, but Scott and Ronnie find it´s not the competition but their differing views that come to a crescendo - secrets versus truth, spotlight versus shadows. Finding their rhythm is tough when they´re each marching to their own beat. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mary C Carpenter.
