“Finally, a novel about the beautiful game and the girls who just wanted a chance to play the world’s most favorite sport.  Jo and Val penned a great story about the end results of many sacrifices and the true benefits of sport—fun, competition, purpose, perseverance, teamwork, friendships and the love of the game.” —Amanda Cromwell, Head Women’s Soccer Coach, University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), Soccer America 2013 Coach of the Year & 2013 NCAA National Champions
