Days before Hanukkah, ten-year-old Ben's soccer team makes the league championships. Only one thing stands between Ben and victory: the rival team's best defender, a school bully whose favorite sport, other than soccer, is tormenting Ben. No one at home seems to understand. And now he has to share his bedroom with his grandfather, a man he barely knows! Facing humiliation at school and misunderstood by those who love him most, Ben finds an unexpected friend in his grandfather, learning ancient wisdom and steadfast strength, enough for the big game and beyond. Includes latke recipe and dreidel game instructions. Ages 8-12.

Review:

An important addition to the meager amount of Jewish-themed early chapter books, this heartwarming novel marks a promising debut for this first time author. Kids will enjoy this book at Hanukkah time or throughout the year.  **Starred Review** Jewish Book WorldThe melding of plot and theme, Jewish history and contemporary life, Jewish values and character development is done very skillfully, with a light touch and a sure feel for childhood emotions and relationships. Ben's family's celebration of Hanukkah is portrayed with joy. Consider this a first purchase...Association of Jewish Libraries Newsletter
