One Goal was named a best book of 2018 by the Boston Globe and Library Journal, and was featured on the Today Show, NPR’s The Takeaway, Midday, and Only A Game. It has been optioned for film by Netflix. In its starred review of the book, Kirkus Reviews called One Goal “an edifying and adrenalin-charged tale,” while the Wall Street Journal declared it “the perfect parable for our time,” and the Globe and Mail dubbed it “magnificent and significant.”
