Shoot-Out: A Comeback Kids Novel

by Mike Lupica

What happens when a star player ends up on the worst team?

He either learns to lose or he stops playing the game he loves. These are the choices facing Jake Stuart. He has gone from champion to last place, testing his sportsmanship every time his soccer team gets waxed.

It isn’t until Jake’s teammate Kevin shows him that scoring and assisting off the field are just as important as being the star player on it, that Jake realizes what being a good captain truly means.
