The Girls of Summer Series, Book 3
Who will make the 2015 World Cup roster?
Training Ground, book one of the Girls of Summer series, introduced Emma Blakeley and Jamie Maxwell, two young athletes with seemingly bright soccer futures. In book two, Game Time, those futures caught up to them—and brought them back together. Now, in Outside the Lines, Jamie and Emma are forced to come to terms with their relationship as each dedicates herself to a lifelong dream: making the 2015 World Cup roster for the US Women’s National Team, the top-ranked squad in the world.
Back in the US for the first time in several years, Jamie has decided to focus on figuring things out with Emma and trying to stay healthy for her new NWSL club team, the Portland Thorns. Emma, meanwhile, a Seattle Reign mainstay, is trying to navigate conflicting commitments, both personally and professionally. But finding balance while living apart and playing for club and country presents challenges that neither woman anticipated.
Join Jamie and Emma for the latest installment in the ongoing story of their lives, loves, and would-be world championships in Outside the Lines, book three of the bestselling Girls of Summer series.
