Today on my blog I have The Field Blog Tour. On my stop there is a spotlight, review, and giveaway.
Eric Horton has been having disturbing nightmares of explosions and fire and someone screaming. The dreams keep him up at night, but during the day, as a goalkeeper on his high school’s varsity soccer team, he has been unbeatable, saving shot after shot with what feels like a supernatural awareness of where the ball is headed. He also shares an uncommonly strong connection with Renee, the attractive new French exchange student. The wild visions and synchronicities pale in comparison to the strange experiments Renee’s father is carrying out in the physics lab at the university, however. He has asked Eric to take part in the tests, which makes Eric question whether what he is seeing and hearing is reality or something far beyond it. When his friend Will develops a drinking problem and Renee starts flirting with other guys, Eric loses his confidence on the soccer field and in himself. If he is going to pull it all together, he will have to tap into a part of himself that he never knew existed.
This was a fun book that has soccer and hidden abilities which sound like they won’t work well together but it does. Eric makes the varsity soccer team as a goalie and with his hidden ability he can tell where the ball is going to go and can block it every time. He also falls for the new girl Rene so everything seems to be going his way. That is until his dreams start to haunt him and his best friend turns against him can Eric get back on his game and make everything right again.
I am a huge soccer fan so I was excited to read a book that has soccer in it. But you don’t have to enjoy soccer to like this book as the characters are very likeable and you will find yourself rooting for them. I loved the connection between Eric and Rene they are very sweet but Eric is defiantly my favorite character in this book. He is a really stand up guy who genuinely loves and cares about the people in his life and even his best friend when he turns on him. I just really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more from
