The book im choosing is called: Going for The Record – By Julie A. Swanson
Seventeen-year-old Leah Weiczynkowski, about to begin her senior year of high school, is on the brink of realizing her dream — playing soccer for the under-eighteen national team, her gateway to the World Cup and the Olympics. Everything she’s worked for in her young life has been about this moment. She can’t wait to tell her dad, her biggest fan and her faithful chauffeur to games and practices. Unfortunately, her dad, Pete Weiczynkowski, has news of his own. Going for the Record addresses Leah’s passion for her sport, her love for her father, and her growing recognition of her father’s faith and bravery. Loosely based on the author’s own experience, Going for the Record is a coming-of-age story on a number of levels, as Leah must question everything that’s mattered most to her and how she will define herself in the future.
This book was just.. WOW. I recommend this book for EVERYONE! Its so weird how this book isnt known alot, because really? It was AMAZING! It was very touching. When i got it, i couldn’t put it down. It taught me how to be strong, and have hope, and never give up. I cried alot, and it is one of my FAVORITE books i have read, and i read alot of books. It was a book, that never left my mind. I have never read any book that was more touching, or beautiful as this. Im speechless about what to say, because to understand my true feelings about it, you HAVE to read it. I loved it, and it always has a place in my heart.
