Kate Anderson signs up for the New Hampshire Junior State Golf
Championship, she has no idea how important it is for her to win. But
when she finds out her family’s beloved golf course is on the verge of
going broke, the pressure is on to bring home the top prize. Because
this year, if she can become the first girl to ever win the tournament,
she’ll earn more than bragging rights and a college scholarship – she’ll
become famous. And with fame comes a gigantic media blitz, and that
type of hype is exactly the prize her family needs to bring back the
crowds and chase away the threats of bank foreclosure.
golf is a game of focus and Kate’s distractions are mounting by the
day: her growing crush on her best friend Scott and dealing with the
local bully seem tough enough without the extra distraction of the cute
British exchange kid her dad hires for the summer. But when vandals
damage the golf course and Scott is accused of the crime, the stakes
suddenly become bigger than any tournament. To clear Scott’s name, Kate
takes on the responsibility of finding the culprit before the course is
vandalized again. Otherwise, winning the tournament won’t even be on the
table . . . and neither will a future with Scott.
