Summary

A boy hoping to make it to the world of big league football is set back by the break up of his parents.

Twelve-year-old Nick is a football-mad boy who absolutely hates books. Football, family, love, and friendship take centre stage as Nick tries to figure out how to navigate his parents' break-up, stand up to bullies, and impress the girl of his dreams.

These challenges - which seem even harder than scoring a tie-breaking, game-winning goal - change his life, as well as his best friend's.

This energetic novel-in-verse by the poet Kwame Alexander captures all the thrills and setbacks, the action and emotion of a World Cup match.
