About this item

A boy. A game. A dream. Will a false accusation crush all his hopes or will the Mighty Dynamo live up to his nickname?

More than anything, Noah Murphy wants to be a professional soccer player—and participating in the Schools' World Cup qualifiers might be just what he needs to get scouted. But when he's suspiciously banned from his school team for something he didn't even do, all his dreams come crashing down.

Determined to live up to his reputation as a dynamo, Noah must find his own way to enter the contest no matter what it takes. With his best friend Stevie on tactics, and the skills of some unlikely new teammates, he's soon ready to take on the world—just as long as no one plays foul.

A chapter book that will delight reluctant readers and sports fans of any gender.

Praise for The Mighty Dynamo:

"There is enough breathless action and strong, believable sports flavor to this effort to make it an easy sell to those (male and female) that enjoy the sport. Go team!"—Kirkus Reviews

"It tackles issues of bullying, sexism, and corruption without ever losing focus on Noah and his mates. Noah and his friends are well-crafted, multidimensional characters, as are the caring adults who try to help out Noah and his fledgling team."—Booklist

"The writing is funny and characters well-developed... A true underdog story that will appeal to sports fans."—School Library Journal
