Bravo Review to come Have to ponder Deuker is too deep to skim and then opine off the cuff E ARC from Edelweiss Above the TreelineBrock is a good kid, and a good athlete, and he s struggling with some difficult things in his life His father has a progressive neuromuscular disorder, which might explain why he is drawn to star quarterback, Hunter Gates Hunter is a huge jerk, but his father is always by his side, throwing him passes in the park and on the sidelines at every game Brock occasionally plays with them at the park, and it is Mr Gates who encourages Brock to try out for the football team Brock does pretty well, but he doesn t want to get hit He feels like a coward in some other parts of his life as well He s decent friends with new kid Richie Fong, but doesn t always show his support for Richie Richie s family is from China, his mother is dying of cancer, and Richie is frequently picked on by Hunter Gates There are times when Brock could have interfered, but he feels powerless to speak up When things really heat up, however, will Brock be able to gather his intestinal fortitude and step in when it is most important This novel spans several years and sports seasons, both football and soccer, for Brock This is important to our understanding of what is going on in Brock s world and mind, and how he deals with things At first, his father s diagnosis is horrifying, but Brock is able to reestablish his relationship with his father and find new activities, like chess, to do with him It s also important to see how Hunter s performance on the field affects his relationship with his father, the pressure put on him, and how he takes his own frustrations on Richie Richie was a heartbreakingly real character Funny, outspoken, and tremendously talented, he becomes a target for bullying because of the very qualities that make him interesting and vibrant The friendship between him and Brock is also sadly realistic I think that boys in particular are often too caught up in their own misery to seek out the support they need from those closet to them As always, Deuker s sports descriptions are excellent, and I appreciated that he had both football and soccer Few books cover multiseason athletes, and having Richie also have soccer skills that transfer to football was brilliant While this isof a young adult book due to the introspective nature of the story, it is appropriate for younger readers who are looking for a sports story withdepth than typical middle grade sports fare Hand this one to football players, soccer players, Future City designers, and any reader who has ever contemplated just how far one should go to help a friend This is a great choice for sports fiction fans There s plenty of sports jargon that sounds real enough to me, but then again I m not too knowledgeable about football Brock is beginning high school and although he s a pretty good athlete, he doesn t have the killer instinct Brock struggles with dreams of athletic what ifs and high school stardom After a chance encounter at the park over the summer, Brock finds himself helping the star quarterback practice Although he has never played before, This

Brock finds himself helping the star quarterback practice Although he has never played before, his soccer ability helps him play receiver for Hunter He decides to tryout for the football team He desperately wants to shine but on and off the field he holds back, lacking the confidence and nerve to beforceful On the first day of school he meets a new student, Richie, who is quirky and offbeat, but the two become friends Richie is a wunderkind, excelling at chess, violin, math, architecture, and soccer He s unapologetic and goofy And a magnet for the biggest bully in school Hunter What s Brock to do How can he ally with Richie and still be the star receiver if he stands up to Hunter There s a lot going on in the story It is a story about friendship, about pervasive bullying, family struggles, finding your voice, and grappling with self doubt and the need to conform or to stand up for what s right Brock feels like an authentic character who vacillates between being a good friend and being a sucky friend who is a bystander to the bullying Richie endures Brock doesn t want to rock the boat or draw fire to himself His motivations are real and middle grade readers are likely to see some of themselves in him By the climax of the novel, things have taken a predictable but terrible turn for the worse Brock finally finds his voice, but will it be too late Hunter Gates is long
