Review by: Graham Downs on June 27, 2017 :
This was a pretty good book. It was nice to read something I'm familiar with, and the descriptions made me feel like I was right there with our hero from the township.

There are a few formatting issues with the e-book I read, but not too serious. Otherwise, the writing was very good.

My issues are two-fold. First, it isn't really a "Soccer Story"; it's the internal dialogue and reminiscences of a young boy who's been chosen to join the soccer academy in the big city. But he never really gets there, which is my second issue. It ends abruptly, and not in a good way. It feels unfinished, more of a preview than a complete story, really.

What a terrific short story of hope and anticipation. I read it with my kids, and as soon as we finished they were asking for the next chapter, wanting to know what happened to Thulani. Is there a 'Book 2' coming?
