Great for a teen who loves sports action (in this case, soccer). Fascinating setting and well-written characters--you will really feel for Paul as he struggles to fit into his family and his new town. However, there are some strange references early in the book which may mistakenly lead you to believe that there will be some sort of supernatural monster attacking him. Don't wait for it to show up; it was just an unfortunate metaphor.

This is one of the best book we've read with the kids here. The story is told by the middle school boy remembering his past and see what's happening where many others don't. Very good message.
