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 Download and start listening now!

    " Excellent. Though it is part of a series, it works as a stand-alone as well. My favorite "soccer fiction" book. "

    " Magical realism in a YA book? Unusual, but true. Slow start, but must-reading for soccer fanatics and magical realism (set in So. America... where else?) fans. Well-written for a YA book (some of which are quick and dirty these days). "

    " this book was a fantastic piece of literature it made it mre realistic putting it more like an interview than an actual story its the first of its kind that i ever read "

    " This book left me oddly ambivalent. Is it a masterpiece or a pretentious fraud? Whereas I didn't really enjoy it (despite my love of soccer) while reading it, I find it haunts me. I have The Penalty on my bookshelf, ready to follow Paul Gaudino with his journalistic career into the magical realms. "
