The book is about a kid with cancer in his leg named Cody. He is my favourite character. He joins a soccer league and gets bullied there. My favourite part is when Cody stands up to the bullies and they leave!

I thought this book was very good and I thought the plot was amazing! I loved Striker because Cody never gave up and he never stopped trying even when he was put down, like when he was put on the "super subs".

Before Cody had cancer, he loved to play soccer. And now that the cancer is gone, he has finally convinced his parents to let him play in the local club, FC Lions. But there are some cheaters on the team, and Cody has to work extra hard to make the team. Will all this playing time be too much for Cody? Luckily Cody finds a friend in a boy who lives near him, Paulo, and Paulo can maybe help him through his journey to become a great soccer player.
