Whisper Nelson hates sports--all sports--with a passion! So when by a fluke she wins a chance to kick a goal past a professional soccer star for a million-dollar prize, she is torn. Should she try it and risk humiliation, or just forget the whole thing and save what dignity she has left? But the Million Dollar Kick might be Whisper's big chance not only to win a million dollars, but to regain confidence in herself.

    I give this book a 5 star because it talks about soccer. The connection i made with this book is that the main character plays soccer and so do i. This book is about this girl who is bad at soccer and she gets this offer. The offer is that she will have a chance to get 1 million dollars if she scores on a pro goal keeper. She scores and gets the 1 million dollars. After it talks about her trying to actually learn the game of soccer so she can play on a team.

        I would give this book a 5 star because it talks about soccer and I like soccer. The connection I made with this book is that the main character plays soccer and so do I. This book talks about this girl who plays in a game and then she gets the ball, but then she ran at the goalie and scored. The goal she scored was her own goal. She had scored an own goal. After that she had a bunch of negative thoughts until there was a contest where she had to shoot against a pro goalie and if she scored she gets one million dollars. When she did it she scored. She got 1 million dollars. Then they talked about her life after that. She got confidence back and she had the courage to learn how to actually play soccer.
