This book is about when Pele was a kid and how he became a superstar. Pele and his friends loved soccer and would do anything for it. The example that is inspiring is that they worked to get their uniforms and socks, but still couldn't afford shoes. This book inspirared me and send a big message that reaching your goal is not easy and you have to work hard for it. Moreover, I would recommond this book to people who love soccer and want to know how the legend became a legend.
