About this book

Mia Tang is play to win!



The Women’s World Cup is coming to Southern California, and everyone has soccer fever—especially Mia Tang! The U.S. team is playing China in the finals, and Mia feels like her two identities are finally coming together. But when her P.E. teacher gives her a C, Mia tries to pull up her grade by scoring interviews with the championship teams. It’s not so easy when . . .



1. The two teams are hunkered down in secret hotels in Pasadena and not taking any media requests.


2. Mr. Yao is back at the motel—as a co-owner! Jason is sure his dad deserves a second chance. Mia is not so sure.


3. Mia’s parents are trying to buy a house of their very own, which turns out to be a LOT harder than they thought!



As Mia aims for her goals, she'll have to face strikers from all corners, as well as her own fears. But if anyone can find a way to win big, it's Mia Tang!
