Lizzie's just been named captain of the soccer team -- the boys' soccer team -- but some of her teammates aren't playing nice. Will it be boys vs. girls forever, or can Lizzie think of a way to settle the score, once and for all?

Lizzie's Soccer Showdown is the story of a strong young woman who, when faced with prejudice, reacts with grace under pressure.

JOHN DANAKAS is the author of four children's novels, all published by Lorimer. Hockey Night in Transcona was an Ontario Silver Birch Award finalist. Curve Ball, Lizzie's Soccer Showdown, and Hockey Heroes are all Canadian Children's Book Centre "Our Choice" selections.
