Arch Pediatr Adolesc Med. 2009;163(10):964. doi:10.1001/archpediatrics.2009.175

In Warrior Girls, Michael Sokolove profiles a sample of young female soccer players and chronicles their journeys through strenuous training regimens, rigorous competition schedules, and frequent injuries. Medical experts are also interviewed and current medical research is examined in attempt to better understand the causes and prospects for prevention of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries. While the focus of Warrior Girlsis on ACL injuries in the sport of soccer, there are broader implications for safety in women's sports.
