I really liked this book. usually I don't like biographies because they are boring but I liked this one more because it has to do with sports.
The autobiography Breakaway by Olympic gold medalist Alex Morgan writes about her life from the very beginning to the end. She tells the details and does a great job telling about herself in a very interesting way. This book has got me wanting to know more about her, because I am a big soccer player and personally want to be like her when I grow up. She is a great roll model and in the book she gives real pictures of when she was a kid. Alex Morgan is an AMAZING soccer player but also an amazing [...]
Football is one of my biggest passionswhich is why I was beyond shocked when I found out Alex Morgan's memoir was about to come out and I had no idea! In case you don't know, I've been following the USWNT since I was a child. Football was kind of taboo for women when I was younger so I got very attached to the women's team as a way to be like "See? Women are into sports! And they're amazing! Football is not just for boys!" But anyway, back to Morgan. Since we're roughly the same age (I'm a year [...]
“My philosophy of life is that if we make up our mind what we are going to make of our lives, then work hard toward that goal, we never lose – somehow we always win out.”, said Ronald Reagan, the 40th president of the United States. Alex Morgan had already decided she would do anything to become a professional soccer player by the time she was eight years old. In her autobiography, Breakaway: Beyond The Goal, she describes the setbacks and successes she has faced since the day she determin [...]
Alex Morgan is a professional soccer player on the U.S.A women's soccer national team. In this book it tells about her ups and downs and her journey getting to the national team. One negative thing in this book was when she tore her ACL when she was 17 years old. Another negative things was how in 2011 they lost the World Cup against Japan. Two positive things were that her and her team won the olympics in 2012 and how in 2012 again they won the World Cup for the first time. I really really real [...]
I think that this book was a great autobiography! Alex Morgan made the book interesting, while telling her story and challenges she had to overcome. I liked this book mostly because it was about soccer and that's my favorite sport, but I also loved hearing her story. Now every time I see Alex Morgan whether its on tv, or a magazine, I feel like I know her story. One thing I think the author did well was giving a lot of comparisons of challenges that she overcame that are relatable to the reader. [...]
I really liked the author and appreciated how hard she worked to become one of the best soccer players in the world. I just don't think I'll put this on my recommended reads for teens because it seems to go from one game to another and it's not for someone not currently following soccer. Also, I didn't really like the affirming paragraphs at the end of each chapter, it broke up the narrative for me.
Alex Morgan writes a combination memoir / advice book aimed at encouraging teens to pursue their dreams. It's like Soul Surfer: A True Story of Faith, Family, and Fighting to Get Back on the Board without the constant references to god.While some readers may find Alex's tone a little condescending and her advice contradictory at times (you're a winner! except for those times when you aren't!), I think my seventh grade readers will want to read -- and will enjoy -- this book. First, I have a lot [...]
Alex Morgan knew she wanted to be a professional soccer player by the time she was eight years old. She practiced every day with her dad and was on multiple soccer leagues. Alex was not always the best soccer player on the field but she was definitely the fastest. Morgan went through many different coaches but each coach knew that if they put her in in the second half, that she would be a threat to the game. Alex Morgan got a Olympic Gold Medal, played on the US Women’s National Team, and scor [...]

Breakaway: Beyond the goalThis autobiography of U.S national team womens team lead scorer Alex Morgan is one of the best out there, It tells of the goals she has and had, it tells of what college is like, playing soccer there, she tells of what it is like in a World Cup and Olympic Gold medal final, and what it is like to play for a national team.This book is 100% non fiction because it is an autobiography, perfect for biography book reports, and tells Alex Morgan's inspiring and motivating tale [...]
A cute book for elementary-middle school age girls. Overall, I enjoyed the insights into the National team. However, I felt played when the story ended just months before the 2015 World Cup. The book jacket is misleading and implies that the Cup victory is discussed in the book. Seems like publishing this book to promote the World Cup, took precedence over finishing the story at a logical point. Publisher got my money and will probably get it again when they conveniently and inevitably come out [...]
Breakaway:Beyond The Goal by Alex Morgan is about how Alex Morgan succeeds in becoming a professional soccer player on the US Women's National Soccer Team. Alex Morgan talks about how she struggled to strive to be the best she could be on the field.This book was very interesting to read. I would recommend this to a classmate since it showed how she succeeded by playing AYSO then playing club soccer.
Best Book i ever read
Alex Morgan is the reason I love soccer. She has the determination strength and skills that it takes to be a player. Loved this sooooo much!!!!!!!!
For my reading assignment, I read the book, "Breakaway: Beyond the Goal" by, Alex Morgan. It is non-fiction due to it being a auto-biography. I rate this book 4 stars because the story was enjoyable, but her style of writing was hard to understand at times. I can compare this book to “Forward: A Memoir” by Abby Wambach because they both describe achieving their dreams/goals in life. The story is told from Alex Morgan’s perspective about her soccer career. Alex Morgan began practicing socce [...]

She begins the book by introducing herself and her family and then proceeds to tell the story of her life up to the point that the book was published. She talks about her early experiences with soccer, her first national team camp, high school, college, [...]
super inspirational. This book made me appreciate Alex even more than I did before. It explains her early childhood which was surprisingly relatable. If you want to learn about setting goals for yourself, determination, hard work, and making your dreams come true this is the perfect book for you!! :)
I liked it, but after reading Abby Wambach's, this one didn't feel as deep. They're really different, since this one is more focused on giving life lessons like "never stop fighting for your dreams". Still, it was fun to read about Morgan. Lloyd is next!
I think this is a great book because I love soccer and Alex Morgan is such an inspiration to me. I really enjoyed reading this book because it talks about her childhood and how she began her journey to being the best.
I really enjoyed reading the book. I related to it a lot because I have had two ACL surgery's from soccer and just hearing someones else's story and that she still plays pro means i can do it and accomplish pretty much anything if i put in the hard work and want to push me self to succeed.
Middle School leadership summer read
Excellent book for aspiring female athletes. Recommend for ages 10+.Her 'The Kicks' series also highly readable and rereadable.
I really liked the book because, she talked about the national team also instead of all about her self
It was good. Not really my genre. I thought the book could have ended sooner than it did. Still a good book, especially if you play soccer! :)
