For some girls, high school is not much different than eighth grade, just a bigger building with hot looking guys. But field hockey player, Jackie McKendry, has a big case of nerves and wishes ninth grade could be magically blinked away. For her, life would be better if she could begin her day at three o’clock on the athletic fields of Northfield High. What she discovers is—hearts yearn to take risks, eighth grade rivalries die hard, and change must be faced by everyone, if they are to survive their freshman season.
