New York : Avon/Camelot Book,
IL 5-8 RL 5.5
is tough for Luke Espinosa, living in a trailer park with his mother and
barely making ends meet on her salary as a waitress. Twelve
years old, he has eyes only for the local soccer teams, but has never had
the money to join, or even to buy a ball and gear. How can he live
his dream, and become a great soccer player? Even worse, how can
he learn enough soccer and put together a team to play a grudge match forced
on him by the spoiled, bullying son of the soccer team's coach?
Read this book for a fast-paced sports story of a down-to-earth boy, his
parents, and an unexpected "inheritance"! (Jeannie Bellavance email@example.com.
