Twelve-year-old LJ knows her place in the world is on the soccer field. When she's out there scoring goals, everything's right. But lately her competitive spirit has been getting the best of her, and she begins to alienate all her friends. Popular girl Tabitha, who spends most of her time on the bench, would give anything for LJ's confidence and ability on the soccer field. Meanwhile, LJ secretly admires Tabitha's world of money and friends. So when it's LJ on the bench instead of Tabitha, she figures out a few things she never expected, and realizes that sometimes it takes more skill to make others look good instead of yourself.
