Kick, by Walter Dean Myers and Ross Workman, is a story about a boy named Kevin who is 13 years old and he loves to play soccer. He got caught driving with his friend Christy. Although he was bright, a good student, and had never been in trouble before, but he was sent to juvie. Thanks to Sergeant Brown, Kevin was freed. Throughout the story, Sergeant Brown tries to learn why Kevin was driving the car and he also tried to learn new things about Kevin. Sergeant Brown attended some of his soccer games and sometimes Sergeant Brown invited Kevin to eat dinner with him. The main plot is mainly about if McNamara, Christy's dad, wants to press charges against Kevin. Also, if he does press charges, Kevin will not be able to play in the State Championship. Even if he gets to play will he and his team be able to go all the way and win the tournament?
I enjoyed this book because it had both sides of the story between Kevin and Sergeant Brown. One chapter would be about Kevin's perspective and the next would be Sergeant Brown's. I recommend this book to kids who like sports or people who like realistic fiction.
