Andre Makuza is excited for another championship season with his middle school summer soccer team. But a new coach is taking over, and his unusual training methods have the team feeling frustrated.

Combining high-stakes sports stories, dynamic full-color comics, and a variety of back matter support materials designed to encourage critical thinking and comprehension, this Jake Maddox Graphic Novel is sure to be a win for young athletes, sports enthusiasts, and reluctant and struggling readers alike.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The ever-popular Jake Maddox series of sports-themed books for reluctant readers expands with this new spin-off series of graphic novels. This installment follows Andre as he presents a report to his class, recounting his summer full of soccer. Andre and his best friend, Cullin, are psyched to move up in the league ranks and play under legendary Coach Winston, but just before their first practice, Winston retires. In his place is a young coach with very unconventional methods, and Cullin is so frustrated with the new direction, he quits. Andre, however, perseveres and ultimately sees the value in their new coach's strange drills. The straightforward writing, easygoing lesson, fast-paced soccer action, and animated, expressive panels make this particularly inviting for reluctant readers, and some closing comprehension questions will make teachers happy. Kids who can't get enough Jake Maddox will appreciate this refreshing format, and soccer fans might get a kick out of the handful of instructions for soccer moves in the back matter.--Hunter, Sarah Copyright 2010 Booklist"
