In the wake of her twin brother's death, Karris Villanueva transfers schools. Out of the stressful academia of Brampcrest Academy and into the laid back public halls of Willowridge High, Karris hopes to finish her last year of high school as smoothly as possible. That is until the hockey team decides to get in the way. After wowing the coach and team with her ability to perform the hardest move in ice hockey, Karris' 100mph slapshot could be the missing element the Willowridge Thunderbirds needed to win-- if it weren't for the fact that she is a female. Cursed with a gender-sensitive rule book, Karris is instead given a coaching apprentice position instead, and while the entire team is meant to treat the 5-foot nothing nerd as any other coach, the boys on the team do nothing but make her job 10 times harder-- especially team captain, number 15, Ashton Irwin. The best player on the team, a dimpled smile, and a charming personality, Ashton always gets his way. Can Ashton move past his hard headed demeanor and learn to open his mind to the idea that the girl with the thick framed glasses, and quirky love for math be the missing link to a championship winning streak? But even deeper, be the missing piece to Ashton's jigsaw heart?
