About this item

Val Flores has always loved being a Soccer Sister. She and her best friend Makena have been part of the super competitive Brookville Breakers for a long time now, and she knows there's nothing that could break them -- or the team -- up. But when the other girls start talking about the winter dance and going boy crazy, Val begins to feel out of place. It doesn't help that her teammate Jessie has been acting super weird and later tells Val the team would be better off without her.When the Breakers play a game against El Fuego, a team from Val's school, she wonders if she should switch sides. Is Val's time with the Breakers up? Does she belong as a Soccer Sister after all? And should she quit while she's ahead -- even if it costs her team the indoor soccer championship? "The Soccer Sisters series isn't just about soccer.
