By Heidi G on May 29, 2014
Format: Paperback
Josh and Aidan are excited to be selected for the United, an elite soccer team. Their enthusiam fades as the team just can't seem to win a game. While researching a project for school, Josh learns about a group of women who formed the 1999 U.S. World Cup team and how they had group-building exercises that seemed to help them on the field. Teammates criticize Josh when his coach agrees to try a few of the exercises. Will the team benefit? Can the players finally begin pulling together as a cohesive unit? Young soccer fans will enjoy the book, as will teens who are struggling with the English language. A decent hi-lo book.
