A good book
The fictional novel Soccer Half Back by Matt Christopher was a story set in the United States during the present time. The story begins with a boy named Jabber who loves to play soccer, and he plays on a team called The Nuggets. Jabber's friend Mose was on his soccer team. In a big game Jabber had two goals with three minutes remaining until the second half. The score was now Nuggets 2 and, Razor Backs 1. Then the Nuggets won that game and Jabber realized how much he liked soccer. One day Jabber's brother Pete lost his wallet, and he thought Jabber took it. When Jabber found the wallet, the money was gone. Now Jabber had to prove that he did not take it, and that he could still be on the soccer team.
Soccer Half Back had some positives and some negatives. All characters are nice to each other. An example is on page 19 when Jabber tells his brother Pete that one of the guys on the soccer team let him use his soccer shoes Jabber wanted to play soccer but his hole family wanted him to play football. The plot of the story kept on going up and down. I also want to say that this was a great book to read. There was not enough description. There wasn't also a very good setting. There was also not a lot of talk about the setting. The plot kept on going up and down.
