Soccer Halfback

By Matt Christopher (Trade Paperback, 1985)
Jabber Morris has had his heart set on playing soccer, but his family is pressuring him to play football, a sport his father played and loved before he died. A tough situation is made even more difficult when suspicion of stealing a wallet falls on Jabber's shoulders. Now he has to tell his uncle that he's decided to play soccer once and for all -- and convince his brother that he's not a thief. But will either of them accept what he says?
