Whisper Nelson hates sports--all sports--with a passion! So when by a fluke she wins a chance to kick a goal past a professional soccer star for a million-dollar prize, she is torn. Should she try it and risk humiliation, or just forget the whole thing and save what dignity she has left? But the Million Dollar Kick might be Whisper's big chance not only to win a million dollars, but to regain confidence in herself.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8 An uninspired and reluctant 13-year-old, Whisper Nelson, who played soccer once in her life, has the chance to win a million dollars. All she has to do is overcome her "bad" attitude toward sports and herself, and go one-on-one against a competitive professional soccer goalie and score. This rendition of Dan Gutman's The Million Dollar Kick (Hyperion, 2001) is a winner. This is the first time that Gutman has used a female protagonist in his many sports stories, and she is interpreted brilliantly by award-winning narrator Christine Moore. Whisper's development from a sarcastic middle-school outcast, at odds with classmates, teachers, and family, to a confident, assertive young woman who knows her own mind, highlights the breadth and depth of Moore's vocal characterizations. Covering a range of female characters, including her mom, her younger sister, her "coach," and the infamous goalie, Carmen Applegate, in addition to Whisper, Moore demonstrates the power of subtle vocal changes. The sensitive, even paced, and clear delivery of every character makes this accessible for a range of ages. Filled with humor and insight about growing up, this is great listening for middle school students. -Tina Hudak, St. Bernard's School, Riverdale, MD
