Max, Alice, Nico, Luke, and Kat decide to try to save an old fieldhouse. Kat is really nervous about trying to beat their school rivals in the big soccer game. As part of the soccer event, they hold fundraisers for the fieldhouse. But in the meantime, the fieldhouse catches fire and they decide to try to solve the mystery.
I found this book more enjoyable than the first, since I know the characters a bit more. It can be challenging to find good sports genre books for younger readers, and I think there was just the right amount of soccer and plot to this read. The illustrations are great.EL(K-3) – ADVISABLE Reviewer: Stephanie Elementary School Librarian & Author
