Home of the braves

It was a very good book, and I couldn't put it down. But after I finish, it just seemed to be missing something. If you've ever had that problem, you know what I mean. But I still recommend the book, it is very good.

Great Read

The Home Of the Braves is a great book. It is great for tennager and also people who play soccer. I couldnt put the book down.

5 stars...

this book deserves 5 stars. after the first chapter i was hooked. The way Klass describes the events happening it just brings it to life as if it really happening. Personally, this is one of the best books ive ever read. period.

Loved the sports, and I hate sports

I really liked this novel. I'm not usually that into sports, but the main character's vivid descriptions of the action made it super-real and exciting. I think I've been converted into a soccer fan--at least I will watch Brazil play the next time they do (and not just because the Brazilian guy in the book was supposed to look like a movie star).


"Legend has it that Lawndale High is HAUNTED!" Joe Brickman, aka Brickhead, is the captain of the Lawndale soccer team. One day this guy just shows up at the school. His name is Antonio Silva, although everyone calls him "the Phenom." He "was" a Brazilian soccer star. No one knows why he is here at Lawndale. Joe's best friend Kris decides that she would rather hand out with "the Phenom" instead of hanging out with her friends. Read "Home of the Braves" to see how the story unfolds. Soccer fans, this is the book for you. This book deals with a bad soccer team who gets transformed into a great soccer team. This book shows how one person can make a difference in sports and after school relationships.
