It’s the start of a new soccer season, and Lacy Sheridan is anxious. She spent the winter recovering from a knee injury that still gives her nightmares. But Lacy is trying not to let fear get the best of her. She needs to bring her A-game if she wants to impress soccer recruiters. Raven McAlister is a tough-as-nails player who plays the same position as Lacy—and she’s going after Lacy’s starting spot. Will Raven move to sabotage her teammate? And can Lacy ignore the pressure and play the way she used to?
