Soccer Halfback by Matt Christopher
Reviewed in the United States on December 15, 2001
Great, but in the middle plot gets dull.
Jabber Morris chooses soccer as a sport to play, but his brother, uncle, mother, sister and the town think he should play football. Jabber likes to play soccer, but his family thinks differently. Jabber buys a pair of new soccer shoes, when he does that Pete, his brother, thinks its final that Jabber is going to stick with soccer. Jabber and Pete have the same thinking for one sport and that sport is Hang gliding. But after an accident and his mom talking to him, Jabber rethinks what sport he is going to play for the rest of his life.
The realistic fiction book Matt Christopher wrote was ok, but Matt has wrote better sports books. I liked this book because it is about soccer, my favorite sport, but I disliked the book because it didn't keep me into the book. The book is ok but if you want a really interesting book check out some of the other books Matt Christopher. (by Howard L. in Torrance CA.)
