About this item

What happens when a star player ends up on the worst team? He either learns to lose or he stops playing the game he loves. These are the choices facing Jake, who has gone from champion to last place, testing his sportsmanship every time his soccer team gets waxed. It is his teammate Kevin who shows Jake that being a good captain means scoring and assisting off the field as much as being the star player on it.

The latest in #1 bestseller Mike Lupica?s Comeback Kids novels is a cheer-worthy ode to the one sport played by more kids across the country than any other?in the summer of the next World Cup.

Transferring to a last-place soccer team that forces him to choose between accepting constant losses and quitting the game he loves, Jake receives advice from a teammate about how to be an effective captain, both on and off the field.
