really liked it

Wow did I learn from this book! I had no idea that a World Cup Street Soccer Tournament is held in conjugation with the World Cup Soccer Tournament; I was clueless about the refugee camp situation as it stands although I know about border crossings; and I did not know that the child soldiers acted on their own without leaders, I thought they were always drugged and coerced into fighting. This was definitely an eye-opener for me.
Running takes on a very different meaning in this book about a younger brother who looks after his older brother than I thought as in "going out for a run." The part I liked the best was not the running, however, but the soccer.
I am writing this about a month after I read it but I think it would be a good book for reluctant readers.
