Kingfisher

Tyra Fraser hates her life. A family move from sunny Florida to an army base in the cold north of England leaves her lonely and angry. Outgoing Tyra hopes to fit in by playing soccer for the school team, but the girls' team is terrible, and the coach is too focused on the boys' team to do anything about it. Tyra wants to turn things around, but before she can do that, she has to get her teammates to take her advice—;and they won't even talk to her!

Chapter One
<p
Hey, Lacey,
How are you doing, babe? How's Tampa Bay without me? How's the beach?
And have you been down to the mall today? Did you check out the guys like
we usually do—or like we usually did, should I say?
<p
Tyra Fraser tapped away at the keyboard furiously. In her head she could
picture sunshine and a blue sea. Outside her window she saw wet, gray
clouds, gray slate roofs, and a muddy gray river.

Oh gosh, you don't know how much I miss Florida, she wrote. England
stinks. Specifically Yorkshire—specifically Fernbridge!
