Fake Out

Release Date: May 10, 2011

“Fake Out begins where the Ball Hogs leaves off, starting mid-action. Ben’s interest in the game becomes an obsession. He mopes and barks at family and friends when they lose. The players practice fancy footwork and look toward the playoffs, and Ben gradually understands the importance of focus and inner strength. Each book closes with a list of practical soccer tips. Jimmy Holder’s simple sketches complement the straightforward narration.” — Kirkus Reviews
