    Recommended-its a good book.

    The Keeper
    I would recommend reading this book because it is very inspiring. This book is very full of joy and happy, it never losses my attention. I always hated reading but when I saw this book it was eye catching. The cover was beautiful, also the reason I read this book is because it was about soccer.
    This book was never boring it always had new things that I was not expecting. This book was about a Boy named El Gato. He was never good at soccer but then he meets a man in the middle of the jungle and he taught him how to become the best goal keeper ever. Eventually El Gato becomes the best goal keeper and wins the world championship and get the gold medal.
    This book really inspired me on not giving up because when El Gato started playing soccer he did not know how to play, matter a fact he was the worst in his whole town. His town was really into soccer and everyone played after school or work or get together in a café and watch soccer games. El Gato was never interested in playing but then when he meet this man (his name wasn¿t in it) he was very inspired on playing soccer, and eventually he became the best goal keeper.
    This book is truly an amazing book and I really enjoyed reading it. It inspired me to never give up even on things that I don¿t like. There are many things that I don¿t like out there but I know that if I try I could actually accomplish something amazing in life. This book has really touched me and I really has inspired me to do something that I don¿t like or try something that I never thought I would like. There were some moments in the book that were different from my culture and things I did not understand because El Gato and his town and family were all Mexican and all lived in Mexico.
    I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to others to read. Especially people who like soccer. This book is a touching book and is very interesting and never losses interest.

    This book is facinating and a must read for boys 12 and up who have some knowledge of soccar. As someone who knows nothing of soccer, I got a little lost near the end of the book when a game was being described in detail. However, most of this book is not about a soccer game. It is about a boy growing up in the rainforest of South American and then in the world of professional soccar. It is about how that boy finds himself, his talent and his passion with the help of magic. It is a short but intense read with an amazing use of words to describe people and the world around them.
