So far, the central idea in Keeper by Mal Peet reminds me of something I have felt.  One of the characters tells the main character–who is an excellent goalie–the following: “Forwards get very tired when they work and work and do not score.  The way they get the energy back is to score. You have taken all the energy out of them” (p. 118). This reminds me of life. When I work hard and feel like I am not successful, it drains me and makes me want to give up.  However, when I work hard and feel successful, I feel energized. I notice this a lot as a teacher. I never realized that soccer players felt the same way.
