I didn't read the book before hand, so no first hand experience, but my little one was 1) excited to read through this book and is already onto the next one 2) telling me the lessons in the book and 3) Asking for more
So what else could you want in a book?
On a 40,000ft view, I think its important to recognize Alex herself for taking time to develop this concept while leading up to the Olympics, closing the book deal with S&S, writing, edits, etc. and promotions all while still playing at the highest international level and attending awards for her performance on the field. This shows character and should not be so easily dismissed. You need to be cognizant of the role models for yourself and loved ones. Who do you want influencing your little girls: Miley Cyrus or Alex? In a broken, sick world, we need heroes who aren't afraid to do the right things. For someone with so much praise and expectation already heaped upon her strong shoulders, it would be easy and unfortunately normal to expect Alex to fall for the media hype and worldly influences. Instead, she remained steadfast following her family values and ignored the syren's call from pop culture.
I wish Alex continued success off the field as well as on the field and look fwd. to her next book.
Not so with "The Kicks" series-what a breath of fresh air! My daughter also plays soccer and she was intrigued to read a book about a girls soccer team, but what I love most of all was the lesson that was taught throughout this book. The main character, Devin, finds herself in a tough situation and being laughed at by other classmates making fun of her soccer team. Did she give up? No! She stood up to the bullies and came up with plans to make the team stronger. This book left such a lasting impression on my daughter that I can now remind her what Devin did in the face of all her problems and that helps her try to solve her own problems too.
Thank you, Alex Morgan, for writing such a wonderful series of books! Morgan's writing is funny, thoughtful, and has great character development. I found myself looking forward to reading the book as much as my daughter did. This week, my daughter had to dress up as a book character for a school parade...who do you think she went as? Devin, of course-pink headband and all! I definitely recommend this series for any child or adult.
p.s. My 5 year old son enjoyed the book as well!
