The Benchwarmers Series
About this Series
From #1 New York Times bestselling, award-winning, sports writing powerhouse John Feinstein, The Benchwarmers is an action-packed middle grade series about sixth-grade soccer teammates in Philadelphia.
Jeff Michaels is the son of a TV reporter just learning how to play soccer. Andrea Carillo earned her place as one of the team’s best players—only to be benched beside Jeff because their coach doesn’t think girls should play with boys.
But when Jeff uses his Philadelphia media contacts to bring awareness to Andi’s sidelining—and athletic skills—they find themselves in the line of fire against bullies in a media firestorm where they learn the true value of teamwork and friendship.
