Matildas superstar Sam Kerr’s incredible story!
  
Sam Kerr has only been playing soccer for a few months after switching from AFL and now her team are playing in the finals! Sam can’t believe it! But when her best friend, Dylan, is appointed team captain, Sam is worried that his shyness might get in the way. Together with her other bestie, Indi, they must find a way to help him overcome his nerves.
 
She is also busy on the home front. New neighbours have moved in next door and Sam has become friends with Jake and his younger brother Will. But strange things start happening. After losing her new water bottle, her soccer boots and then when her dog Penny disappears from the garden, Sam has had enough. It’s time to get to the bottom of the mystery while at the same time preparing for her finals match. There is a lot to deal with for the young soccer superstar!
