Annie Fleming's family has adjusted well to her hard driving career. How could they not? Annie keeps her husband, daughter and babysitter in line with typed, edited and proofed To-Do and Not-To-Do lists. (No TV on school nights, please!). But when an obnoxious co-worker conspires to force Annie out of her job, she finds herself not only out of work, but face-to-face with a family that isn't quite as well adjusted as she'd thought. For one thing, husband Tim has been travelling more than usual, and he's not always where he says he'll be. Worse, daughter Charlotte is showing little interest in joining the Lightning Bolts - a legendary, elite, work-till-you-drop soccer team run by Winslow West, a man who dreams of the Olympic gold his young charges will someday win for him. How could Annie, undefeated even when unemployed, have a daughter with a quitting attitude? Now, Annie is determined to do whatever it takes to get Charlotte on the A team, but the soccer sidelines turn out to be more cutthroat than the corporate boardroom ever was. Is it possible Annie's 'Plan Hard/Work Hard' credo isn't the key to success after all?
