I read the book Playing Favorites written by Trevor Kew I loved it I loved how the main character Gavin started of on the field and they introduced veryone I loved how there was two different things going on But my favorite c A well written relatable story with thought provoking content that ven those who don t play soccer will be able to appreciate Gavin is a freshmen soccer player at a school that loves football After his summer team loses because of Craig a "Rich Kid That Was "kid that was on the team because his dad was the coach Gavin is looking forward to high school soccer so that his team can beat Craig s My favorite character in the book was Critter because he is a lanky goof that plays goalie and somehow makes crazy saves all the time My favorite part of the book was the awkward first practice that they had without a coach because I coach a youth team and the first practice is always terrible I could relate to Gavin because he was trying to coach a team of misfits when he hardly knew if he could coach the team The story adds realistic lements like on Saturdays the three friends watch English soccer in the morning and it had real results from 2013 Another character that I njoyed was

Chool doesn t have a soccer team Soccer is his life as Football Is His English is his English s life Taking his cue from something his grandfather did as a young man Gavin gets permission to set up a soccer team but he has to be the coach From the start the team is a mess Gavin doesn t know how to be a strong coach his best friend Mido seems to want to take over from him several of his new players have no idea how to play and the ony one who does is playing for himself not the team Can Gavin get his team sorted out still pass math and not disappoint his grandfatherI thought this was a good basic sports book It was
WELL WRITTEN THE TIES TO ENGLISHwritten the ties to English added interest though might also add confusion for American audiences and I liked that Gavin was not instantly a good leader just because he was a good player Beyond that it was pretty predictable There were the typical God's Choice: The Total World of a Fundamentalist Christian School egotistical mean boys the wise advice from a mentor you know is going to bite it later the friend issues the triumph at thend I know nothing about sports so I can t comment on the accuracy of all that but there was lots of action and description of soccer playsgames I think a lot of soccer boys and some girls will really Hard Bread (Phoenix Poets (Paper)) enjoy this and may gain some good information on teamwork and leadership Notxactly groundbreaking thoug. T Gavin will be responsible for running the team With a newbie team made up of misfits and kids just out to have a good time Gavin soon learns that being a good coach isn't the same as being a good playerFry reading level.
