Parker Stanhope has played soccer practically since she could walk. And now that sheÕs a high school junior, everything sheÕs worked for is finally coming together. SheÕs paid her dues on the field, and as an upperclassman, sheÕs a shoo-in for the varsity team. But thatÕs not what happens.
This year, Coach Hartley moved up every JV player but twoÑand one of those two was Parker. Now, sheÕs stuck with the freshmen, her friends are cutting her loose, and her love of the game is seriously beginning to fail. But Parker is determined to get her life back. She has to get on the varsity team, and she has the perfect plan. All she needs now is the right kind of coach.
