New girl Lucy is desperate for friends. She tries out for Beachwood High soccer but, despite her amazingly accurate kick, fails to make the team. When the coach points out that varsity football is looking for a new kicker, Lucy is skeptical. Football? Isn't that a boys' game?
But on the gridiron, Lucy discovers that she feels strong—in control for the first time since her mother died. She loves football. She actually wants to play! (She also wants to hang out with super-cute quarterback Ryan Conner. But that's just icing on the cake.)
Too bad no one else wants her on the team. Not the coach, her teammates, or especially her overprotective dad. Will Lucy cave in to the pressure? Or will she prove she's pretty tough after all?

This is an awesome book that is totally off the regular plot of teen books. A girl on the football team and so much drama that she doesn't start but fall into. Filled with crushes, bullies, high school drama, and so much football!

Drop everything and read!!!
I really enjoyed the book I loved how some times the character was dimwitted but showed real strength and heart through out the book. I love how she was able to do her best to pieces together her life and showed real proudness in being a girl football player. I feel in my best belief that this story could be in powering to girl every where being discriminated because we are so called weak. This book brings power and strength into anyone that reads it.
