Mack McGinn comes from a long line of winners: Gramp, the football hero; Dad, the (almost) Olympic soccer star; and Mack's older brother, Rory, who has enough trophies to start his own hall of fame. After Mack joins Rory at Danville Middle School, his own jock stock is starting to rise. Mack is running faster, getting stronger, and taking tips from his best friend Digger's dad, who might be the greatest soccer coach in the whole state.
And if Mack can just steer clear of creepy Pope Banker next door, convince his mom that Digger's a good kid, keep his concentration on the track, and manage not to strangle Rory before Danville Day, he might make his family prouder than any eleven-year-old athlete ever dreamed possible.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I actually have the rough draft of this children's novel, because I know Coleen Paratore. I read the printed out pages, held together with a ring, very quickly because I knew that this future children's book would be a hit. It's a great book for 9-12 year-olds. I definitely recommend this to your children.
