Nine-year-old Venus Macquire is ready to trade smiling for the camera for nailing a soccer ball into the net. Her mother isn't thrilled. She's been grooming Venus for supermodel status since her daughter was three. Everyone at school knows about Venus's famous commercials, and some of the girls on the soccer squad don't think she's cut out for athletic competition. Thing is, Venus is a soccer natural—and she almost has her team convinced. When she's scheduled to be the Cinderella doll at a toy store grand opening, the would-be soccer star has to show everyone, even herself, that her real goal is not to be special. It's to be the real Venus—a regular kid, with a kick!

This book is athletic and fun for a girl. The author's name is Erika Tamar. This book is about this girl named Venus. She wants to play soccer but her mom wants her to do something else. Then Venus goes to soccer practice behind her mom's back and says she's going to a friend's house (but she's not). The soccer coach says that Venus isn't a good player. Then her mom figures out that she's playing soccer because Venus's coach called her mom and tells her, and if you want to see if her mom lets her playing soccer then you should read the book. I like this book because it's about a girl that wants to play soccer, but her mom wants her to do something else and the girl plays soccer behind her mom's back and it teaches you a lesson. I think you should read this book because it makes you learn a lesson. I think 2nd-4th grade should read this book because someone older (like 6th grade and up) might think it's a little childish. The book is over 100 pages so if you like not long and not short books then you should read this book.
