Boys rated it a 4 but I thought it was a 3. Started out a little boring but then got better, according to them. :). There were several "lessons" in this book...bullying, friendship, competition so I enjoyed tackling a few of them with the boys.
This book seemed to be an okay book. I quit reading to my young kids because the literature seemed a little old for them. Perfect for second or third graders.
rec to read with your 9-12 year old - deals with bullying and friendship - gives you a chance to talk with child about real issues.

Owen Foote was playing soccer on a team called the Aliens. They had a plan but the plan didn't work because the plan was against the laws.
Soccer team practice sections were especially good. Good book for young soccer fans.
