Owen joins his town's soccer team with his friend Joseph. Joseph is not very good at soccer and the team is mean to him. Owen stands up for Joseph and they stick together. This proves that soccer is just a game, and friends are more.

I like this book. The author teaches a great lesson of fighting to keep a friend and staying strong during struggles. I chose this book because I like soccer.
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.

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.
