Couldn't put this book down! Jul 31, 2005
This is a book about two twin brothers both on the same soccer team who in the begining fight from the time they get up till the time the go to bed. One is sort of close to God and they other wants nothing to do with Him. Slowly through the book they change. In attidude, soccer skills, and relationship with God. At the end of the book, both desperatly wanting to see each other after a situation on the field arises. But both are afraid of how the other one will react.
I thought this was a good book. It shows that you should be thankful that you have a sibiling. Even when they do things on purpose yet not realizing what could happen.
