Off the Wall is an entertaining new soccer novel for girls.
The main character is Lizzie, a thirteen year old whose life is not running smoothly. Her parents are always complaining about her, she's having trouble at school, and one of her classmates, Brock, has made it his personal mission to tease her mercilessly. The only bright spot is soccer, which Lizzie excels at and loves.
When Lizzie's younger sister, who is the family darling, develops a sudden interest in the sport, it's the last straw. Lizzie decides it's time to take matters into her own hands and make some changes in her life.
Off the Wall is a fast-paced, boisterous story with lots of plot twists and plenty of soccer to keep young readers amused.

Camilla Reghelini Rivers has written a thoughtful story about the difficulties of being a teenager... Teen readers can sympathize with Lizzie and see themselves in this high spirited character. The pages contain comedy, tears and the wonder of finding a new friend... Real life!
