Fashion, modelling, dance ...football? Everyone's making plans for Lucy's future. But will she get to pursue her own dreams on the pitch? Lucy's family is famous for two things in Italy- football and fashion. They're prime paparazzi fodder. Lucy's pushy Australian-born mother wants her to model for the family's fashion label. Even worse - Lucy's father agrees. He's the captain of Milan's premier football team, so shouldn't he be happy that Lucy's more passionate about playing the beautiful game than being a beautiful clothes horse? But Lucy's been leading a double life, playing on the sly. And when she and her mother move from Milan to Sydney to be near Lucy's Australian grandparents, Lucy has to find a new team. Eventually she'll have to come clean about who she really is and what she really wants.
