    8. I loved Aronson s debut Head Case and was really looking forward to reading her follow up This is a complete 180 from her debut and I really enjoyed it I wasn t quite pulled in from the beginning perhaps because I m not much of a sports fan but as I got further into the story, I got invested in Ari and the other characters Aronson s first foray into middle grade fiction is spectacular she really nails the voice, the emotions, and the situations that happen as kids grow up Their interactions all [...]

    9. Do you like soccer if you do then this is your book This book genre is Realistic Fiction because it talks teenagers that like soccer but are not real people.In my opinion this book relates to me because it talks about a 14 year old teenager that wants to be a starter goalie but there is another goalie and brags a lot and is a better player two The setting of this book is at a soccer field and at school The major events of this story is when Ari finds a Lucky Card of Wayne Tomcoe and this card ma [...]

    10. My reaction to the book was that it was very interesting and a little suspenseful and I like it because I like soccer This reminds me of me when I play soccer because I sometimes get very competitive and other things like that in the book An important lesson I learned is that you have to trust your friends and don t always assume things A lingering question I have is what will Ari the main character do with his lucky card he used for soccer The main characters changed throughout the story becaus [...]

    11. Found this book especially easy to read as the narrator s voice flowed and the story line had a nice mix of soccer action and middle school drama Multiple messages hidden throughout, but the strongest being that even our heroes let us down sometimes Wasn t super thrilled that this book centered around soccer, but the author does a nice job of making it something you could relate to Every now and then there would be a sentence that didn t quite make sense, almost as if something was lost in editi [...]
