Heart-warming and action-packed, this is the story of Cody, a 13 year old cancer survivor trying to get back on the soccer field following treatment. Soccer fans will especially enjoy the play-by-play descriptions of each soccer game. There are lots of good sub plots here as well: fighting parents, standing up to bullies, prejudice and more.
An easy read, appropriate for grades 6 and up.
