Like lightning/you strike/fast and free/legs zoom/down field/eyes fixed/ on the checkered ball/on the goal/ten yards to go/can't nobody stop you/ can't nobody cop you ... Soccer, family, love, and friendship, take center stage as twelve-year-old Nick learns the power of words as he wrestles with problems at home, stands up to a bully, and tries to impress the girl of his dreams. Helping him along are his best friend and sometimes teammate Coby, and The Mac, a rapping librarian who gives Nick inspiring books to read. A novel-in-verse that bends and breaks as it captures all the thrills and setbacks, action and emotion of a World Cup match!
