Shutout

by Brendan Halpin

Image result for shutout by brendan halpinFourteen-year-old Amanda and her best friend Lena start high school looking forward to playing on the varsity soccer team, but when Lena makes varsity and Amanda only makes junior varsity, their long friendship rapidly changes.

I really liked this because it showed how friendships could change after decisions are made. I liked it because it was a real-life example.

I recommend this book to all because its a friendship crisis. For those interested in soccer stories this book is definitely for you
