Out of Sight

by Robert Rayner

Linh-Mai has always admired the acrobatic moves of her soccer teams goalie -- Flyin' Brian. But her admiration becomes concern when an eye disease causes Brian to start losing his vision.

Goalkeepers don't wear glasses...

Lately, the star goalkeeper on Linh-Mai's soccer team has been acting a little strange -- missing easy saves, passing to the wrong teammates, not noticing Linh-Mai's new glasses... Linh-Mai thinks the goalkeeper needs glasses of his own, but the problem may turn out to be more serious.

Reviews

"Readers who are especially interested in soccer will enjoy the play-by-play action found in most chapters ... Out of Sight is a refreshing change ... and would be a good addition to a school or public libary collection."
