Description

Since they were six-year-olds, Madison and Dayton have had soccer sync. Maddie doesn't have to see her best friend on the field to know where she'll be. Her passes to Dayton are perfect, as if the two of them can read each other's mind. Together, they're a scoring machine. There's only one problem: lately, Dayton seems more interested in partying than playing soccer. And Dayton's change of heart couldn't have come at a worse time. Now that she and Maddie are sophomores, they have to really focus--or they'll have no chance of making it to a Division I college team. Can Maddie get through to her best friend? Or will the scoring machine break down?

Review quote

"In Archenemy, Addie and Eva play soccer for Fraser High. After a misleading invitation, Addie finds herself sitting in church with Eva and listening to the pastor who says that two girls liking each other is an 'abomination.' The story takes a turn after Eva lets Addie know that she'd like to be more than friends and is rejected. Addie begins to find notes telling her to quit the team and that no one likes her. She isn't especially alarmed, but things get serious when Coach Berg tells her that she is being dismissed for harassing fellow teammates. Hoblin explores homosexuality without using the words 'gay' or 'lesbian, ' forcing readers to pay close attention. This story will reach many readers, not just reluctant ones. In Out of Sync, Madison 8 Wong's name includes the luckiest Chinese number, and she is known as 'Mad Dog' to her teammates. She and Dayton have been friends since they were six years old, playing soccer and doing everything else together. Now that they are sophomores, though, Maddie aims to score high on the field and on her SATs, but Dayton essentially wants to find herself and uses her energy to get fake IDs for a popular nightclub. Maddie is concerned about Dayton's lack of interest in the game and its effect on their friendship, but she's caught the eye of recruiters for Division-1 schools. With its play-by-play action, this novel will mainly hold the attention of soccer fanatics." --School Library Journal
