    fun book with subtle lessons on being brave

    First off, my kids thought this was a great title. And it suits the story well. Bobby is a 9 year-old boy (same age as my daughter) who loves to skateboard and doesn't like to play football because he's not good at it. Problem is, his father is an ex-football pro star, and Bobby's greatest fear is letting his Dad down, especially since his sister Annie is a quarterback of the high school football team and their father's pride and joy. This book was really fun to read to both my kids. It was a little advanced for my 6 year-old son but he got the gist of it and liked the story. It has some funny scenes, themes that most kids can relate to and revolves around school and home. Bobby is a very likable character, who is kind to his younger sister Casey, and whose insecurities and dilemmas are very real. My kids thought Bobby was brave when he handled well the teasing about his asthma attack at school. They learned what it means to have asthma and how serious an attack can be. My kids were satisfied with the ending as all the plot elements were neatly resolved. It was a good change to read a book with a boy's perspective on things. (My daughter is a girly girl.) This is the second book in the Bobby series and I think it will do very well. I also think it's a great father and son read, especially since Bobby's father is a stay-at-home Dad. This was a refreshing change. Altogether, this is a great book.
