Through years of friendship, Kyle and Jonny have always stood up for one another, but suddenly all of the training, pain, and dedication have become meaningless as their friendship is tested to the breaking point.
Exciting sports action and a misguided sense of justice combine in a suspenseful tale of popularity and entitlement - and an ending that Jonny never saw coming!

"The author includes a wealth of soccer action but stops the details short of overwhleming the story. Jonny's convincing narration reveals a sympathetic character with authentic teen issues he cannot control." (Kirkus Reviews)
"The ending is terrific, original, and unexpected." (The Reading Tub)
