"Once again the author works into the story line a plethora of tips and facts about the game, making this a book for reluctant players and soccer fans alike." (Publishers Weekly)
"Gutman paints a sharp, funny portrait of middle-school society. The dialogue rings true and the various cliques and subgroups will strike a familiar chord with adolescent readers. This is an exciting sports story with a compelling message about individuality and self-confidence, as well as a touch of romance." (School Library Journal)
