    Rooney Tells All.

    Wayne Rooney is a decorated football star who is only 22. Most people are still in college at this age. He grew up in a small town in Liverpool, where he lived, breathed and played soccer every possible moment. At the ripe age of ten, Rooney signed with Everton's youth program. He quickly became the best of his age and progressed through the ranks. At seventeen years old he made his first professional debut in 2002. Since that game he has been on the fast track. He became engaged to his high school sweetheart, Coleen. In 2004 he was traded away to Manchester United and became a starter. He has played with them ever since. Wayne Rooney has led a life on ups and downs. From signing a professional contract at age 16 or breaking his foot a game before the world cup.
    The major themes of this book are to never give up on your dreams. Wayne Rooney is a great example of this. He grew up in middle to lower class neighborhood, but never let that affect him. He was always someone who just loved to play football no matter what. I think this is great because it gives younger players hope that someday maybe they could make it to the big leagues. Another great theme I saw in this book was passion. Passion for the game of football. Most Americans do not understand what it is like to have a love of a game like many other countries. This book really illustrates how people of different nationalities love the game of football. It is a great way for Americans to look at the sport through a different perspective.
    I really liked the inside knowledge of an English soccer club that the author brought into the book. It shows how playing for a club like Everton or Manchester United is not just a past time it is a life style. If there were any dislikes I would have to say it was a little hard to ready because of the style of writing. Wayne Rooney being English, brought his accent to the book, and it took some time to get used to. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a motivational story about a boy who doesn't give up in football and someone who is looking for a new way to look at the sport of football in a new light. A book that I would recommend is Beckham, which is about Rooney's English team mate David Beckham. Overall, I would rate this book a solid 4.5 out of 5. It was a good read and very hard to put down.
