Genre: Young Adult

Keeper

Performed by:
Christopher Lane

In a small newspaper office in South America, Paul Faustino, a veteran sports reporter, begins an exclusive interview with El Gato, the World Cup-winning soccer phenom. Over the course of the long night, El Gato tells the story of how an unspectacular teenager in a poor logging town became the world's most accomplished goalkeeper. It is a tale filled with tension, hunger, and magic, set in a mythic corner of the jungle. But above all it is a tale about El Gato's ghostly, but very real mentor: the Keeper.“A well-written, fast-paced sports story that addresses far more than just the sport itself.” —School Library Journal“This haunting tale is full of sports action.… An unusual and compelling story.” —KLIATT
