Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-6Christopher intertwines play-by-play soccer action with a story about a 12-year-old boy coping with his parents' divorce. Mark lives with his grandparents while his mother and father try to settle a bitter custody battle. He quickly becomes a valuable player on his school soccer team, but Vince, captain and last year's MVP, resents him. With Grandpa Conway's help, the boy confronts his parents with his angry feelings and stands up to Vince, as well. The book delivers important messages without becoming didactic. In a satisfying conclusion, Mark acknowledges that ``Not all his problems had gone awaywhose ever would?,'' but his future looks optimistic. Competent storytelling with positive values.Blair Christolon, Prince William Library, Manassas, VA
