From star soccer player and Olympic gold medalist Alex Morgan comes the first book in an empowering, fun-filled middle grade series about believing in yourself and working as a team. Devon moves to Berryvale, California, just in time to start seventh grade. She wants to try out for the middle school soccer team, but she’s afraid she won’t make the cut. After all, Californians are notoriously crazy for soccer. There’s sure to be stiff competition. But at tryouts, Devon quickly discovers that the Berryvale Bobcats are terrible. She easily makes the team, but the Bobcats get pulverized in their first match against their biggest rival, the Pinewood Panthers, and they quickly become the school laughingstock. Not even their coach cares whether they win or lose. At least Devon becomes part of a group of friends—Jessi, Zoe, and Emma—who call themselves the Kicks. When the team’s rematch against Pinewood rolls around, Devon decides she’s sick of their team being treated like a joke. She convinces the coach to get behind them and, with the Kicks’ help, rallies the team together. Do the Berryvale Bobcats have a shot at winning after all?
