Soccer phenom Charlie Connor is cruising through high school, until the letter arrives from London. Charlie makes the academy team at elite club Burnchester United—and makes fast enemies. Battered by inferior opponents and spurned by jealous teammates, Charlie yearns to return home to Virginia. But Charlie’s dad can’t hear him, not while he’s living his dream through his son. Charlie’s girlfriend and best pal are no help either. Charlie’s yoga instructor helps him curb his rage and earn promotion to Burnchester United. Maturing into a world-class talent, Charlie envisions a career playing for Burnchester and the U.S. national team. But his dad is pushing him down a different path, a path shaped by ego, greed, and Charlie’s dual citizenship. As his first contract expires and the World Cup looms, Charlie’s future hangs in the wind. Will he stand up to his dad, or get taken down?
