Review at Welcome to the House of Soccer

Brian O’Connell wrote a wonderful review of Boys on his site, Welcome to the House of Soccer. Some highlights:

“This isn’t your typical story about a team overcoming the towering hurdles. It isn’t a tale about underdogs. It isn’t about winning. It isn’t about all of the tired sports cliches that we’re bombarded with on a regular basis.

“Rather, it’s an introspective tale about very real people whose lives happen to bisect on the soccer field. It’s about how they learn from each other. It’s about reconciling one’s past. It’s about personal demons. It’s about how some stories don’t have neat and tidy endings. Some stories simply leave you with the characters as they are: unfinished works.”
