• by Kwame Alexander


  • Nick doesn't think he is extraordinary, but it is true that he and his best friend, Coby, are stupendous soccer players.  Although Nick’s college professor father watches his educational growth carefully, requiring extra reading and word study, Nick hates books and would rather do anything than pay attention in class.  Abruptly, however, Nick's life crumbles when his mom announces she is leaving home to take a job in Kentucky, and a ruptured appendix lands Nick in the hospital, keeping him from playing in a prestigious soccer tournament.  His soccer dream derailed, Nick turns to the books he has avoided and finds more than he expected.
