"Whenever the team wins, everyone wins and whenever the team loses, we do so as a team but we play giving 100% until the game is over." Readers who are not into sports need not worry, this title focuses more on the off-field drama and personal lives of the players, parents, and coaches more than it does on-field performance of the Knight's team. Great for fans of the sport, parents, children, and readers who enjoy pre-adolescent drama fiction, this title is a fast, fun, and satisfying read.

The story reveals what motivates these characters to reach their goals by working as a team. Helping others win in life is the go, fight, win of this story and the characters truly earn the name “Good Knights.”
Good Knights of California was told to me chapter by chapter after Isaac came home from school. A natural athlete, Isaac Bowers excels in any sport he plays. Football is his passion. This story is fiction based on his experiences playing football. The story is Isaac’s and I am Carol Welty Roper, the co-author. I worked to make his story come alive on paper.
