Lily lives for soccer, and her involved but busy family knows it Because she cares so deeply about the sport, she has some problems with impulse control on the field When she tries to impress a scout at the expense of the team and other players, they turn against her and she is benched for two games At the same time, her grandfather moves into her room and she is blamed for damaging a sign when she didn t, although she was definitely in the wrong place at the wrong time Since her other frien Lily lives for soccer, and her involved but busy family knows it Because she cares so deeply about

sports book for slightly younger girls, and this issues with friends and family complemented the sports action.Weaknesses Tabitha s family has a driver and a housekeeper I suppose there are families like that, but it s so outside my realm of experience that I couldn t believe it Also, looking at the covers of these three, I like the action shots better Breakaway is a great book It contains a lot

called Soccer Sisters that starts with 1, but doesn t seem to include this title, but I would recommend them very highly for teachers in grades 4 6 The soccer sisters series title is likely to scare boys away as readers, but there s not much in Breakaway that boys would feel was too girly for them, unless they just couldn t handle having a female author and lead characters The themes are pretty universal, and the way the characters relate should resonate about as well with boys as with girls In short, a good, light read about sports and other realistic issues, told well and with some good and not overly heavy ethics thrown in Lily was born to play soccer, or at least that s how she felt the first time she kicked a soccer ball She s good at it too, the best on her team But when she
