Booklist

Junior Library Guild

  • Deals realistically with the complexities of friendship—Ben clashes with a friend on a rival team and learns to rely on a teammate he didn’t get along with initially. Meanwhile, Ben’s older brother, Larry, emerges as a positive role model.
  • Jimmy Holder’s illustrations highlight dramatic scenes, including a heated fight on the playground, a dangerous slide tackle on the soccer field, and a last-minute shot on goal.
  • “Ben’s Top Tips for Soccer Players” recaps some advice about the sport, such as “Keep control of your emotions. Getting angry or frustrated won’t help you play better.”
