About the Book

Jake just knows he’s going to be awesome at soccer. He’ll run down the pitch, super-fast and much too tricky for the other players. He’ll fire the ball at goal like a cannon.

But Jake quickly discovers that soccer isn’t as easy as it looks. When he isn’t tripping, he’s slipping. His dribbling looks like bad passing and his passing looks like bad dribbling. Will he ever get his great game?
