Tired of the glamorous pageantry life her mother has forced her to lead, Venus now wants nothing more than to join the Comets soccer team.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4--Venus wants to quit modeling and play soccer like a normal nine-year-old, but when she joins a team, her mother is less than enthusiastic. Finally, the girl resorts to drastic measures; she chops off her beautiful curls to get out of dressing up like a Cinderella doll for a toy-store opening, an event that conflicts with the Comets' first game. Tamar fills her tale with over-the-top exaggerations, yet the humor falls short. Venus's mother is a stock character, a former Miss Texas Oil Well with a rhinestone oil well tiara in her memory bank. She lavishes all her attention on her only child, hoping that her daughter will have a future consisting of more than a bookkeeping job. Venus is teased and treated rudely by many of her teammates either because they are jealous or because she shows up to practice dressed in white shorts trimmed with gold ribbon. Ultimately she does make a friend who has the same competitive spirit toward soccer as Venus had previously when auditioning for her modeling jobs. However, readers never develop sympathy for any of the characters.--Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA
