Goal Line (Barber Game Time)

by Tiki and Ronde Barber (Author)

Reading Level: 4th – 5th Grade

Tiki and Ronde have grown a lot during the spring and summer. At the start of ninth grade, they're not only wiser and more mature, but they're also taller and stronger--with bigger muscles and bigger hands to grab and hold the ball. Factor in the return of their beloved Coach Wheeler, and the boys couldn't be more ready for football season.

But when Tiki wins a school-wide essay contest and gives an inspirational speech in front of the whole school, he becomes sought after for guidance and advice. The school paper even wants him to do a Dear Tiki column! However, Tiki would prefer make his mark on the field--and with the Eagles starting 4-0 and a perfect season in sight, he'll have to put a lid on his advice column and concentrate on football.
