I read this book to my cousin over the Thanksgiving break. She is really into soccer and found this book enjoyable. She really liked the fact that it was a book that related to what she is interested into at the moment. The book depicts the lives of three girls that are going up against their rivals in a season of many mishaps and follies. It is a cute book for any girl that is interested in soccer and I find it very important for books like this to be available to students. They want to read ab ...more

I really liked this book because it was very exciting. There was always something going on. Devin was the main character and always was with her friends. Even though I love soccer I felt that Devin was a little too soccer crazy. I think there needs to be something else going on between school and soccer. I also think that the coach should be involved more. It also seems like every friend of Devins has the same personality. I loved the book because it was so interesting
I would recommend this to

Beyond Exciting

I love soccer and school, but is it better to focus on one thing more? I liked this book because it helped me understand that I shouldn't be too focused on just one thing. I now know that it is better to balance out the multiple things that you might have to do and not focus on just one thing. I recommend this book to young soccer players like me and I think it can help you understand like it helped me!

I was very happy when I found the series of books. I love Alex Morgan so I decided to giver her books a try. This gook is about a girl who moved from far away and is really good at soccer. When she moves, she decides to try out for the soccer team and makes it. But when she gets elected team captain the season takes a wrong turn when there is someone trying to sabotage them. The team has to figure out who has been doing it.

I read this entire series when I was in middle school. I enjoyed it enough to continue to purchase the books after each new installment came out.

The plot for each book was something new, and I enjoyed that it wasn't just the same old story revolving around the same climax in every book.

What I didn't enjoy was the length. The books were way too short for my liking. I need length, because I honestly whipped through the series in one sitting. The LEXILE is very low, and there is little to no sophi

Devin Burke is trying to get her team to the playoffs this upcoming year so they can beat their archrival, Pinewood. But things for the "kicks" were not going so good they had really bad luck. That made Devin's friend Jessi is very worried and she wondered if someone was sabotaging them, so she did some investigating and went to Pinewood. Things became more apparent that they were being sabotaged but by who, they go on trying to figure it out. In the end they end up going to playoffs even though ...more

It was awesome! Alex Morgan is a great writer and I am glad that she is able to write these books and play soccer too. I like that this was a complex story and it wasn't only about the team all the time.(I hope this makes sense.)

I feel this book shows what the struggles of "pre-game" really are. It is a great fiction adventure, with a bit of mystery. Alex has done a great job of connecting real life to this book. They characters in this book were well shaped,
