About the book
The author has beautifully expressed her experience at Football for Friendship Championship at St.
Football for Friendship(F4F) promotes the idea of establishing a football culture that fosters friendship and unity. It is an opportunity and platform for talented youngsters belonging to underprivileged families from countries with lesser means. Their initiative promotes honour as one of the core values of all participators. The friendship bracelet is an official symbol of the F4F programme showcasing the sign of tolerance, equality and a healthy lifestyle. It encourages balanced participation and the capacity to promote and achieve gender equality with societies.
Football is described as not just a sport but a stress buster. Adding games like soccer in your routine helps in maintaining fitness, strength and endurance. Sports can unite enemy countries involved in conflicts and wars. It is a great way to empower woman.
At a tender age of 13, the author has a vast insight of life and its reasons. She has closely observed the events at F4F and narrated each and every detail in the book. There are many emotional phases where you feel connected. Even if you are not a sports enthusiast, this book will keep you hooked. A very good lesson from the book says ” You should learn to lead yourself which will help you to lead others better”
I could sense motivation in every single narration. There is positive thinking throughout the book. Respect is the one quality that bonds the world. While reading through the incidents, you will vision many different shades of character in a player. I am amazed at the keen observation the author shows in her writings.
I am sure you will fall in love with the game once you read the book. I recommend this book to all the book lovers who love life. Friendship is the base of every successful relationship. Here, you will understand how
