by Matt Christopher

The Junior Library Guild Premier Selection Award winner for Fall 2007!!!

Rob Lasher is just an ordinary soccer player, good at the game, but not great. Then one afternoon, he saves his coach’s life in front of all his teammates. Suddenly, he’s the team’s hero. As some members of his team and the rest of the town continue to laud Rob’s heroic act, Rob realizes he doesn’t want the attention and any unearned awards that come with it.
