Eyes on the Goal (4 for 4)by John Coy
Synopses & Reviews
Just before theyre due to start middle school, Diego, Gig, Jackson, and Isaac, four sports-loving friends, all attend the same weeklong soccer camp. Diego is an experienced soccer player, and Gig has a natural ability for the sport he never realized. But Jackson and Isaac are split into another group of players—a group with younger, smaller kids. For the first time, both boys arent the stars of their team. In fact, they cant seem to get a handle on soccer. At the same time, Jackson is having a hard time getting a handle on his moms deepening relationship with her boyfriend, and her suggestion that they move in with him. And Gig is worried about his fathers deployment to Afghanistan.
Here is a story about how life, like sports, can be unpredictable, frustrating, and exhilarating.
The four friends from Top of the Order are back—this time, attending soccer camp just before starting sixth grade.
