A flash flood wipes out Los Suenos only soccer field, but eleven-year-old Lucy and her eight-man dream team land on their feet when coach Augie snags the team a slot in the elite Las Cruces summer soccer camp. Over the next three weeks, Lucy has an opportunity to show her stuff to the Olympic Development Program scouts and step closer to her dream of playing Olympic soccer. But Lucy must first challenge a cheater on the select team determined to bring anyone down who gets in her way. When Rianna threatens Lucy, her friends and teammates, Lucy must decide whether she’ll do the right thing, and how to find the wisdom to deal with a barrel full of middle school drama.

In Lucy’s Perfect Summer, Nancy Rue captures the preteen middle school world in a soccer setting, offering hope and encouragement with outstanding realism. Lucy must contend with friendships, family and local disasters, nasty and manipulative teammates, honesty, courage, and self-sacrifice. Finding inspiration in the story of Queen Esther, and encouragement from other interesting characters, Lucy evolves into the kind of kid girls want to hang out with.
