Whisper Nelson's mental videotape remembers everything--including scoring a point for the opposing team in her last soccer match four years ago (yikes!). So when she wins a chance to kick a goal past a professional soccer player for a million dollars, she is torn. Should she risk further humiliation and failure in front of all of Oklahoma City--and worse, in front of her whole middle school? Win or lose, taking the million dollar kick might be exactly what Whisper needs to make her dreams come true.
