Andrea Montalbano and soccer Olympian Brandi Chastain will appear between 8 and 10 a.m. on NBC’s “Today Show” Tuesday. They will discuss current trends in soccer including injury prevention and having strong female athlete characters in books such as Montalbano’s “Soccer Sisters” series.

Montalbano’s first book, “Breakaway,” a story of soccer and friendship, was the featured book for Napa County Reads 2012.

“Breakaway” and Montalbano’s second novel from the Soccer Sister Series, “Lily Out of Bounds,” are still available at the discount price of $6 from the Napa County Office of Education.
