Cody Trilogy

Thirteen-year-old Cody Dorsett is recovering from cancer and wants a normal life, and that includes soccer. Stuck on the bench and bullied as the new, bald kid, Cody has to find a way to prove himself as a Striker. The Beautiful Game challenges Cody to fight for what he believes in, to forge new friendships and mend existing ones. Finally, as his team battles to make the finals and Cody faces the bullies one last time, an offer from an elite team makes Cody question his place in The Starting Eleven. Who is he after this unforgettable soccer season, and what does he really want from soccer, himself, and life?
