'Lucy's finally come clean to her parents about her football dreams, but her elation is short-lived. Her football legend father, Paolo, isn't doing anything to quash rumours that he has a secret son from a past relationship. Is it game-over for Lucy's parents? As if that's not enough, Lucy's best friend Bella is jealous that Lucy is spending so much time with her team mate, Max. It looks like Bella's made friends with the school bully - and Lucy's on-pitch rival - as revenge.
'There's a reason Lucy is hanging out with Max. He's finally found a loving home with his uncle, but is struggling to adjust to family life. Can Lucy help Max find a place in the football world - and avoid going back to the streets? With all her worry about Max's chances, Lucy is neglecting to look out for her own. She might have messed up her trial for the state team, and she hasn't heard back from the football academy yet either.
'Her ex-model mother Frida might just have something to do with that. Frida's organised a new shoot in Milan for the Love Lucy brand. She says she wants them to get away from all their worries. A fantasy fashion shoot in the Piazza del Duomo is certainly a distraction - especially when friends and family arrive unexpectedly.' (From the publisher's website.)
