Great series for reluctant readers. My 10 year old will read Lupica's books without a fight. I enjoy that he emphasizes perseverance, respect and sportsmanship.

I gave this book to my ten yr old athletically gifted grandson who loved it! Going for more of these for him.

My soccer loving fifth grade student loves this book
Uickabrod
Nicely presented the proper attitude for competition in a soccer team setting and how to be a good friend and teammate. My 5th grader commented that it was "a good story but a bit predictable." I am just fine with that assessment. It means that he was following the story and understanding the moral, which was exactly the purpose for suggesting that he read it.

Characters are real, regular boys from good families- the type of boys we'd be happy for our sons to have for friends. The dialogue is genuine, and sports references spot on (my son agrees). Story and main characters have depth enough to make the story enjoyable, but not so much that it is difficult or unaccessible to the young audience. Author struck a nice balance.
