It is a real life situation that kids have to make and it might inspire a kid to go out and play sports or want to play soccer. View 1 comment. Oh boy. This had to be the worst book in human history. Let's list all the reasons why: 1 Now in the story the father is dead. How do I know this, they mention it on every other page and rub it into the main character's face like how his mother said, "I told him there were scholarships available for children whose fathers were dead.
How about we announce to the world that my father is dead, you think they'll feel sorry?! Then the mother s Oh boy. Then the mother said "Anyway, that all ended when he got killed in the accident. You're kidding. If that was the first time, I have twelve children and my name is Barbra. I'm still wondering if he means the father thing or the fact that they want him to play football. Either way this was just a prime example of telling and not showing when it should be the other way around.

Kids would assume that main character, Jabber, had just gotten sexually assaulted by Mel who had just ran into him in that game! How about the one that's in the book, "Speak about the Devil"? Never hear that before, and I'll never use it. How may high-schoolers do you know who live in the northeast and hang-gild?
How about none. And then Pete, the brother, almost kills himself in gusty winds. Boy, that smart! For no apparent reason at all, Pete tells Jabber he can play whatever he wants and doesn't have to be football. What's up with that? And the mother still doesn't say anything because she want him to be a football star. How many stars do they need?
Pete's a football star and their sister is a volleyball star but nobody knows that because nobody even goes to her games. Somewhat interesting story line, sucky writing and unelaborated. By far one of the worst books I have ever read May 19, Brandon Mazeffa rated it really liked it.
I really liked this book because I personally love the sport soccer. I have read many Matt Christopher books and this is one of my favorites. It has a lot of action playing soccer of course. However, it also talks a good amount about the boys life with friends and family which made it interesting.
The scenes were descriptive and it was an all around good book. Apr 06, Caroline Mickey rated it did not like it. Basically makes no sense. Dec 05, Jose rated it it was amazing.

Sep 29, Nick Schilling added it. It also is not just about soccer it goes off topic when he goes with the other characters to places you would not think of it goes into greater detail about it to. Dec 01, Brian Alvarado rated it really liked it. Have you ever been in a situation where you had to choose over two options?.
Well, in this realistic fiction book, in which I think is great. Reflects in real-life situations in which teenagers have to go through, where either you have to do what others say or do what you really want to do.
Plus, not knowing which is the better decision. It all started in soccer field, in which our protagonist Jabber Morris finds himself in a situation where he loves to play soccer, but his family wants him to pl Have you ever been in a situation where you had to choose over two options?. So after time passes, he thought about quitting soccer and get into football so he could satisfy his family, but after his family realizes Jabber needed to be himself, they support him on staying in soccer.
Also, the conflict that takes place, is person vs. Adding on to that, I would say that a simple theme would be to not decide the future of someone without taking into account what that person wants.

In which I think is the symbol of the story is having family support. Because after disagreeing on the sport Jabber was in. It took them a long time recognized his ability in the sport he was in, plus they realized that Jabber needed to follow his own footsteps in order to be himself and what he wanted to be. Then I would recommend this book to the people who look for books that teach them a lesson, in this case a life lesson.
Plus for other people who like sport books. Finally, never stop to do something you like. Aug 25, Sean Castellanos rated it it was amazing. The next day his brother Pete had accidentally he broken his leg hang gliding so his football season was over this made jabber think more about playing football.
