"It's been almost a year since thirteen-year-old Cody was diagnosed with cancer for a tumour removed from his leg. Now he wants his life to get back to normal so he can start playing soccer again. Though it's a struggle, Cody tries out for the Lions and makes the team as a sub. He's secretly relieved since he hasn't told anyone on the team he had cancer. But after a lineup change, Cody has no choice but to play, even if he thinks it's more than his leg can handle. Cody doesn't want to let his teammates down, and telling his mom will mean he'll be taken off the team. Can Cody find the strength and the courage to get his A-game back?"-- Page 4 of cover.
