KICKERS: a young middle grade soccer series
Book 3
It's a race to the Kickers soccer league play-offs. Nine-year-old Ben is pretty sure that if the Bobcats win two of their last three games, they ll earn a tournament spot. But in their game against the Tigers, the Bobcats are a mess on the field they re not passing well at all and Ben decides to take control. Someone has to win this thing, and his teammates just aren t measuring up.
Then the whistle blasts, the red card waves, and Ben is out benched for dangerous moves. Not only that, he's barred from the next game, too a key bout against the Rabbits. How can he possibly help his team to the play-offs from the "sidelines"?
The Kickers series, from award-winning sports novelist Rich Wallace, features nonstop soccer action, black-and-white art, and league statistics and soccer tips throughout.
