Review
Grades 3-6 High-school freshman Todd Bensen is a striker on his soccer team, and his best friend is the team’s outstanding goalie. In the course of two seasons, Todd moves from one school (with a coach who is a blowhard) to a school in a poorer suburb (worse team, more-grounded coach). Along the way, he develops a crush on a girl, but nearly has the budding romance derailed by the machinations of an Iago type who sends false text messages. This is part of the Champion Sports Story series, with each novel centered on a major sport. All titles feature an easy-to-read text, a short length, and a fast-moving plot (with plenty of well-described sports action). As sports novels go, these seem somewhat packaged and hammered out without a great deal of effort. Reluctant readers or those with reading difficulties, however, will appreciate the unintimidating format combined with accurate sports details. -- Morning, Todd (Reviewed 03-01-2012) (Booklist, vol 108, number 13)
