Product Description

Loosely based on the author Julie A. Swanson's own experiences, this coming-of-age story portrays Leah's passion for her sport, her love for her father, and her struggle to define herself in the shadow of an uncertain future.

Seventeen-year-old Leah Weicynkowski is on the brink of realizing her dream---playing soccer for the under-eighteen national team, her gateway to the World Cup and the Olympics. Everything she's worked for has been about this moment. She can't wait to tell her dad, her biggest fan and her faithful chauffeur to games and practices. Unfortunately, her dad has news of his own. News that will make Leah reconsider everything that matters most to her. He has pancreatic cancer, and maybe only a few months to live.
