Children Ages 8+ • 3.3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2000

Chris reluctantly befriends his troubled neighbor, Danny, despite the harassment and mockery fellow schoolmates hand him. Danny's ultimate dream is to score a soccer goal. Slowly, under Chris's coaching, Danny learns to play better, and eventually he is called into a game when the team lacks a player. This moving story is skillfully woven as Paul McGann portrays each character, including needy Danny, cruel classmates, and Chris, who at times displays both frustration and pride in his pupil. The story includes numerous soccer details but remains interesting due to realistic characters and situations. S.G.B. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
