Every night at bedtime he was crying about what if his friends weren’t in his class, what if his teacher was mean, stuff like that. He got very wrapped up in the homeschool fantasy. I heard him yelling a couple of times, Amanda can be my teacher!. No thank you. I was actually more stressed out about soccer than school

Shutout by Brendan Halpin is a great example for friendship. It sometimes felt like the story kept repeating itself and wouldn’t move forward. I absolutely loved it, it was very interesting. It was relatable to me because I also play/enjoy soccer. Halpin goes very in depth at expressing her characters throughout the whole book. Although the book had many many characters it was impossible to miss out the main characters, Amanda and her best friend Lena, together they were an unbeatable dynamic duo on the soccer field.

Suddenly, everything Amanda took for granted is changing-but she's about to discover that might not be bad.

Halpin's narrative adeptly segues between adrenaline-filled soccer matches to more reflective, contemplative passages. Amanda's quandary will resonate with readers as she tackles timely topics such as friendship woes, teen drinking and family life with admirable aplomb. Amanda faces tough decisions: Should she succumb to peer pressure in the name of friendship, and should she bother to salvage a friendship gone awry? The resulting rift with Lena leads Amanda to explore new friendships, the benefits of yoga and a potential relationship with a reclusive boy in English class.

I am 15, a girl, and also play soccer and thought this was a really great book. You can really relate to what Amanda is going through with this being her first year of high school and living up to the expectations of her parents and her soccer coach. It shows a true look into a girls self-esteem and the pressures faced with in high school. Amanda's best friend, Lena, gets picked to be on the varsity team and Amanda only on the JV. This book tells of how it ended their friendship, soccer, and how they found their way back together.
