Keeper Hollie Goldberg Sloan Beginning paragraph Keeper, by Hollie Goldberg Sloan, is a book with a girl named Sasha who is afraid of everything. She then learns to not be afraid of everything which leads her to overcome her fears. In the beginning, it is rough and very sad for one who is only in middle school. Sasha’s mom is already dead and she is living with Nammy (her grandmother). During this novel, Sasha overcomes amazing feats and learns how to overcome her fears.
Keeper Hollie Goldberg Sloan Rating I would give this book a letter grade of A- because the book did not have an impressive punctuation and because of that, I got very perplexed during the book. I would recommend this book to people who think that sports are very enjoyable, but mainly soccer, because it is about a soccer team that strives to win and through that effort, they win the soccer tournament! If I could ask the author one question, I’d ask her what inspired you to write this novel?
Keeper Hollie Goldberg Sloan Word Splash
Keeper Hollie Goldberg Sloan Word Splash I chose soccer words for this word splash collage because my book is about soccer. Friendship was used because it is about two friends who are inseparable and also because it would show that this book is not only about soccer, but also trust. This girl, Sasha, is a girl who is afraid of everything and as she gets into soccer, she starts taking up risks by just playing the sport.
Keeper Hollie Goldberg Sloan Word Splash cont. Sasha becomes the teams back up, back up goalie, the one thing she is afraid of most about soccer. She is constantly thinking about being in the goalies net and getting shot at with soccer balls! A picture of the soccer team would make a great impression on the word splash since teamwork is the key to their success. The book is exhilarating and it is about soccer, soccer balls, goalies, right wing, left wing, center, foe, allies, and goalie nets. But the one thing that keeps everyone together in this book is more than that, it is about trust, loyalty, friendship, and love.
