The Girls of Summer Series, Book 2
By Kate Christie
In book two of Girls of Summer, Emma Blakeley's and Jamie Maxwell's futures are upon them.
It’s late 2013, and the world’s best soccer players are gearing up for the 2015 World Cup. In London, Jamie has just completed her third year as a professional footballer at Arsenal Ladies F. C. Only one soccer dream still eludes her: a spot on the US women’s national team.
Emma, a national team regular, has recently moved back to Seattle to play professionally in the NWSL, the latest incarnation of an American women’s pro soccer league. When Jamie is invited to her first national team residency camp, Emma is apprehensive. As pro soccer players they have crossed paths before, but they haven’t spent this much time together since high school.
Jamie, meanwhile, would do almost anything to earn the chance to play for her country at the highest level. Even, if she had to, share a room with Emma at team residency camp. Both women are hoping it doesn’t come to that.
Join Jamie and Emma for the latest installment in the ongoing story of their lives, loves, and would-be world championships in Game Time, book two of the bestselling Girls of Summer series.
