9780142419038: Breakaway

Twelve-year-old LJ knows her place in the world is on the soccer field. When she's out there scoring goals, everything's right. But lately her competitive spirit has been getting the best of her, and she begins to alienate all her friends. Popular girl Tabitha, who spends most of her time on the bench, would give anything for LJ's confidence and ability on the soccer field. Meanwhile, LJ secretly admires Tabitha's world of money and friends. So when it's LJ on the bench instead of Tabitha, she figures out a few things she never expected, and realizes that sometimes it takes more skill to make others look good instead of yourself.

About the Author:

Andrea Montalbano lives in Bronxville, New York.

From Booklist:

Seventh-grade soccer star Lily James learns hard lessons about teammates and team playing when ball hogging earns her a two-game suspension at the same time that an angry, impulsive gesture leads to hours of washing dishes and windows in her father’s restaurant to pay for a broken sign. Friendship issues, class differences, and the tensions of an extended family in a small house all play a part in this coming-of-age story, but its central concern is soccer, as both a physical and a psychological game. First-time novelist Montalbano, former cocaptain of her college team, writes convincingly, including appealing details of Lily’s practice sessions with best friend Vee and new friend Tabitha as well as suspenseful play-by-play game descriptions that will be welcomed by middle-school soccer enthusiasts. Like Lily, though, they may want to ignore the excellent advice of her coach and her mother, given in homilies that go on just a bit too long. An awkward story line and too-convenient ending are redeemed by the fast-paced action, which is certain to appeal. Grades 5-8. --Kathleen Isaacs
