Summary

Summary

Renowned sports journalist Dan Wetzel shoots and scores with Epic Athletes: Lionel Messi, an inspiring biography for young listeners of a soccer great who rose from an underdog to a champion!

Lionel Messi has taken the soccer world by storm. He scored the most goals in a season. He’s racked up championships. There was even a statue built in his honor. Despite the accolades, he’s still hungry for more goals, more championships, more opportunities to shine on the soccer pitch. Messi’s drive to succeed has motivated him ever since he first stepped on his local, worn-down field as a kid.

Yet his success didn’t come without bumps in the road. Diagnosed with a career-threatening medical condition at ten, Messi refused to give up on his dream and went on to amass one of the greatest careers in sports history. Filled with sports action, this thrilling biography details the rise of a living soccer legend.
