Eighth-grader Micah is psyched to have made the BC junior goalball team - even though he gets the news while dealing with a flare-up of his degenerative eye condition. What he's not happy about is his parents' decision to get him a guide dog, and the possibility of losing his independence. When Liam, a new, first-rate player, joins the goalball team, Micah's frustration with his vision spills onto the court. It's only with the help of Cam, his Orientation and Mobility Specialist, that Micah starts to get a handle on his aggression and trust people enough to communicate how he feels. But with the team's big junior tournament in Richmond, B.C., quickly approaching, Micah has to reconcile his differences with his teammates - both on and off the court - to become a real team player.

I like this book because the setting is local. I am able to relate to many of the different places that Micah visits. I liked how descriptive it was and that it felt like you were experiencing what Micah feels throughout the story.
