On her first day of middle school, Faith breaks out of her comfort zone and joins a rag-tag girls soccer team called the Bloodhounds. The Bloodhounds are the C Team, which means they're the worst team. That’s okay because no one on the team really wants to be there anyway. The team is very diverse and, consequently, conflicts easily arise. Sweet and sensitive Faith tries her best to unify the team. Her efforts aren't perfect, but in the end everyone on the team learns they have a lot more in common than they initially thought.
