This story teaches people to have good sportsmanship. In the story, good sportsmanship helps Devin make friends on the field, and it helps her team to succeed. I think this is a very good lesson because you will definitely be happier with your team. I would recommend this book to whoever likes soccer. It might help you learn something.

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?
The fact that she's watched Alex play soccer and that my daughter also plays select soccer makes her feel the books are written just for her and she loves it!
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.
