Debut author Misty Wilson chronicles her seventh-grade experience as the only girl on her town’s football team in this empowering graphic memoir—illustrated by her husband—about teamwork, friendship, crushes, and touchdowns.

Misty never shies away from a challenge, on or off the field. So when the boys tell her she can’t play football, there’s only one thing to do: Join their team and show them what she’s got.But the training is rougher than she thought—and so are the other guys, who aren’t thrilled about having a girl on their team.Middle school isn’t so easy, either. Misty wants to fit in with the popular kids, but they think a girl playing football is “weird.” Even her best friend doesn’t get it.Can Misty find a way to score points with her teammates, make new friends, and show everyone —including herself—what it means to play like a girl?
