Play Like A Girl
The 7th-grade boys’ football team just got a new player, and her name is Misty. Excited to begin a new school year, Misty has a rockin’ new haircut, a stylish new wardrobe, and has started wearing makeup. She’s itching to finally fit in and is ready to show the world that she can be cool.
But she quickly realizes her new clothes are too outlandish, and her hair is far from trendy, not to mention the acne her football helmet has caused is just plain gross. Misty begins to lose confidence in herself as she deals with mean girls, crumbling friendships, and her teammates trying relentlessly to get her to quit.
It seems all the things she thought made her cool—especially playing football—have actually made her even more of an outcast. Now she must work hard to prove herself both on and off the field.
