Asiyah Najjar enjoys playing volleyball with her friend, Lucy, and the rest of the players in their recreational league, but this year Lucy has talked her into joining the travel team--and suddenly volleyball is a lot more demanding, and a lot less fun, then it used to be, and easy-going Asiyah must learn to dig deep if she does not want to let her teammates down.

Pumped-up, easy-to-read sports stories with an emphasis on speed, skill, and fair play. The boys and girls in these books face obstacles on the gridiron, the court, the ice, or the half-pipe, and meet mental and social challenges as well. Readers discover that an athlete's inner game, persistence, and courage are just as important as a steady hand or a chance for a goal.
