“Absolutely love this great read about women in sports.  Contemporary fiction with women athletes at the center of the narrative is long overdue. We need stories like When Girls Became Lions for the next generation of girls in sports. Authors Valerie Gin and Jo Kadlecek have given us such a story and a tremendous reason to hope for more novels like this.” —Julie Foudy, 1999 USA Soccer Champion, Olympic Gold Medalist, ESPN Broadcaster
