Soccer Chick Rules (Paperback)
Tess's love in life is soccer. When she finds out that all sports at her school will be cut unless the community votes for a tax levy, Tess will do anything to rally votes. She's even joining forces with a cheerleader to help spread the word and raise funds. Throughout the campaign to save soccer, Tess is playing her heart out on the soccer field and struggling to make passing grades in her classes. But if the levy doesn't pass, will it all have been for nothing? Find out in Dawn FitzGerald's Soccer Chick Rules.
About the Author
Getting in the Game is Dawn FitzGerald's first work of fiction. A middle school teacher, she lives with her family in Ohio, where she watches her children play sports and cheers "Good effort!" after every play.
“FitzGerald takes a serious subject--school finance problems--mixes it with plenty of action-filled sports, and frosts the whole thing with best friends and rivals. The result is just what kids, especially girl jocks, want: a fast-moving, true-to-life, amusing take on middle-grade life.” —Booklist
“Girl jocks are the natural audience for Soccer Chick Rules, but it will also appeal to a wider readership. Its hopeful, but realistic, ending sends an important message to any girl with a passion or a cause.” —School Library Journal
