I choose the Defending the Line: The David Luiz Story (ZonderKidz Biography) because I was interested in a good biography for older kids that also shows the faith and character of an individual. I had never heard of David Luiz before, and this book definitely taught me more.
The book is a very easy read, and I think it is a great read for boys ages 10-12. I think boys who enjoy sports and soccer, then they will find this biography interesting. I don’t know if it is because I am not a huge fan of soccer that made me a bit bored throughout reading the story.
Another thing I found disappointing was that the book did not focus that much on Luiz’s faith and character. Overall, I think it is a good read for boys into sports. If I had an older son, I would definitely want him to read this opposed to the other junk available. So while it is not as big of a faith lesson as I thought it would be, it is still a good clean read.
