A tender, witty examination of finding yourself in a culturally-diverse world

Adele is a star soccer player with a rotten family, an aching heart, and an impossible frenemy. As pressures at school and home mount, will she overcome all or will she crash and burn? When everything collapses, Adele realizes she can only rely on herself in this feminine take on the soccer world, being a teenager, and figuring out who you are.


"A innovative, impressive and well-crafted narrative that strikes a chord for young and old alike." —Carol Leeming, singer-songwriter
