The North Star soccer team is thrilled when Shane, the new boy at school, turns out to be a talented goalkeeper. But Shane has a temper that gets him in trouble and a demanding father who acts out on the sidelines at every game. Soon Shane’s teammates start to worry that something is really wrong—and that Shane’s not nearly as tough as he seems. 

Keeper is packed full of fascinating facts about famous goalies and the history of goalkeeping.
