Noah Murphy wants to be a professional soccer player more than anything in the world. If he can make enough money, his dad can come back from working far away and live with him and his sister again. The way he sees it, the only way to get there is to win the Schools’ World Cup, get scouted, and get on the professional pitch. But then Noah gets banned from his team. Luckily, the Immaculate Conception School for Girls doesn’t have a team yet, and they’re looking for players. Noah’s got a big task ahead of him—he’s got to recruit enough players to make a team and find a coach. The task isn’t made any easier when the kids they recruit aren’t what you’d call star players, and the only coach they can find doesn’t seem to understand how to be a coach. But Noah won’t let that get him down. He’ll get there one way or another.
