Samantha Aqsarniq Keyes is used to a life on the move. Her military family has been transferred across Canada, and she’s grown up with stories of her Inuit ancestors exploring the far north. For Sam, soccer has been the one constant in her life. But now that she’s thirteen, her home base isn’t the only thing that’s changing.

Sam longs to show up Carly, her school’s reigning soccer star, but Sam’s new interest in theatre is taking up a lot of time. Does she have the time to practice her sport and be the lead in the school play? And just how far will she go to prove to her parents that she can handle more than one extracurricular activity?
