There are bullies and boys, tests on the field -- and text messages off it. With the Women's World Cup next year, the timing couldn't be better.
For any sports-minded kid who has to write a book report on a subject he or she loves, this is the perfect choice!
I almost didn't read this one. I'm not a fan of books that are put out by minor publishers because the writing and editing is almost always bad. This book however was terrific and felt very professionally edited. I loved reading about Flora and the adventures and stresses she had while at camp and couldn't put it down.
Appropriateness: There is no adult content in this book and only a hint of romance. While this is a sports book it's appeal is broad enough to interest those who aren't obsessed with sports. I recommend this book to readers 10-15
We meet Flora Dupre, a young girl who loves soccer and wants to be the best she can at it, but her mother's diagnosis and death from cancer threatens to derail her from her goal. Soccerland, the place she was able to create with her mother, was the opportunity she had to let the cares of the day go and just focus on her passion. When are dreams seem as though they have a chance of coming true will she be able to focus, regroup and allow herself to keep pushing forward?
I think this message is important for young women and men but also for adults who might be sidelined by life on their way to pursuing their passion. I think Beth shows that this can happen at any age, but you have to be willing to press forward and not allow it to deter you. Just as Beth's mother tried to provide a place for Beth to be able to mentally escape her ordeal, we can show that what is happening to us doesn't have to stop us from pressing onward.
Definitely a book that will build confidence and showcase the possibilities in life, Beth Choat's SOCCERLAND hits the mark.
There is a lot of sports action in the book and I was not surprised to learn that the author has a background in sports journalism.Read more ›
Flora is a terrific character. At first, I was a little thrown by the colloquialisms she uses, but I soon loved the look at her little community and the people who live there. She represents a part of America little seen in books. Although the story is fantastic on its own, the book gives some good (but subtle) lessons about self esteem, health, team work, and individualism. Flora is the kid you wish you were and the kid you want your daughter to grow up to be.
After reading this book, I want to take a step back in time and join a soccer team. I feel like I missed out on something!!!
