About this title
A chapter book about a young Irish soccer player and his family. Charlie Stubbs has one passion in life - playing soccer. At twelve, Charlie's in top form and a scout from Manchester United has been keeping a close eye on him! With his beloved grandfather coming to visit, everything is looking great ... But then tragedy strikes and Charlie's life turns upside down. A hurried move, his family's deep loss - and his soccer career stalled. Then Charlie discovers that his grandfather was a great soccer player. He hears about The Legends' Lair and he soon sets his sights on organizing one more tournament on the legendary soccer ground. But what old rivalries and buried tensions will he open? ""What O'Brien captures so well is the aura of the game. He handles with aplomb the sheer fun of playing a game with grace. . . A joyful approach to sports and a salute to the importance of understanding history.""--Kirkus Reviews*** ""Charlie's interactions with family and friends are universal. His family members are very supportive of his desire to immerse himself in soccer, and his closest friends are the ones on his teams.""--School Library JournalAbout the Author:
