Description

Winner of the Michael L. Printz Award, New York Times best-selling author Walter Dean Myers is critically acclaimed for his cutting-edge fiction for young people. In Kick, Myers teams up with Ross Workman for a tale that's sure to hit the mark. All the talent and finesse in the world are of little value unless one has the endurance and determination to make that final kick. "Drugs, drive-by shootings, gang warfare, wasted lives-Myers has written about all these subjects with nuanced understanding and a hard-won, qualified sense of hope."-New York Times

Professional reviews

"Alternating between the viewpoints of 13-year-old Kevin Johnson and the much older Sergeant Brown, Peter James fleshes out the characters and enhances the narrative of this short book. Though he has a passion and talent for soccer, Kevin's future is jeopardized when he's accused of stealing a car. As his mentor, Brown tries to get Kevin to explain what occurred before it's too late. James maintains a strong distinction between each character's voice, with Brown's voice deep and resonant and Kevin's softer and less confident. James also changes his pace to match the active chapters told by Kevin and the more relaxed ones told by Brown. Secondary characters are given distinct voices as well. L.E.
