Soccer Shake-Up by Jake Maddox, Jesus Salvador Aburto Martinez

Dominic doesn't want to play soccer, but when his mom signs him up, he has no choice. So Dominic just messes around on the field during practice, even though he secretly admires the skills of Carlos, his star-player teammate. When Carlos has to miss a game, Dominic starts to think it could be his time to shine. But after his rowdy behavior, will his coach or any of his teammates trust Dominic to score big?

About the Author

Who is Jake Maddox? Athlete, author, world-traveler – or all three? He has surfed in Hawaii, scuba-dived in Australia, and climbed the mountains of Peru and Alaska. His books range from the most popular team sports to outdoor activities to survival adventures and even to auto racing. His exploits have inspired numerous writers to walk in his footsteps – literally! Each of his stories is stamped with teamwork, fair play, and a strong sense of self-worth and discipline. Always a team-player, Maddox realizes it takes more than one man (or woman) to create a book good enough for a young reader. He hopes the lessons learned on the court, field, or arena and the champion sprinter pace of his books can motivate kids to become better athletes and lifelong readers.

Good book, without too much of a plot but with a great and memorable cast of characters. Book is aimed towards 11-14 and I would not recommend it for under 8, as it can get serious at times. It is about a boy named Dominic Harper, who is a kid who plays soccer after his brother goes to the hospital. Characters are very likable, especially the main characters. Plot is heavily based around soccer and you might not understand parts of it if you don't enjoy soccer, but you don't have to like it to read this book. 4 stars for a serious yet good book.
