Summer Week Continues - The Wild Soccer Bunch

Come meet a rag-tag team of eleven friends and one lovable dog. They call themselves “The Wild Bunch” and their passion is soccer.

As winter turns to spring and the school break finally arrives, the boys’ are anxious to hit the field at any cost. But, once they arrive, they discover a group of large, angry bullies already there – The Unbeatables. With names like the Grim Reaper, Humungous, Octopus and Bull Dozer, these kids are anyone’s worst nightmare. Soon the Wild Bunch find themselves locked in a challenge for possession of the only soccer field in town.

All hope is lost until Larry, an almost soccer pro and owner of the lemonade stand, agrees to coach them. His unorthodox training methods give this team more than they bargained for, but will it be enough?

Told by nine-year-old Kevin, this middle-grade novel isn’t only fun and funny, it touches on some serious aspects of life; Diego has asthma, Roger is timid, Joey lives in a van with his mom, Larry the coach struggles with life’s defeats. The kids learn some serious life-lessons and even Larry walks away a better man.
