My two favorite parts are when Abby writes in her journal with her purple pen becasue it is realistic. I also liked the ending when she scored a lot of points in a soccer game because she didn't do that very often.
I love the illustrations in the book. I like how they were drawn in purple because that's Abby's favorite color. I also liked them because it really looks like what Abby would look like to me.
I felt worried when I read the book. I worried that Abby wouldn't really get to be such a good soccer player. I also felt proud when she did.
I was really proud of her when she had her writing in the newspaper. I also felt happy that she kept a journal because I like them too.
I recommend this book for first graders to fifth grader. I also think kindergarteners would like it if somebody read it to them. It is especially good for people who were having a hard time with soccer, but can do it now.
