"Includes netball tips and training drills!"--Page 4 of cover.
A junior fiction series written in partnership with Netball Australia. Can Jade learn how to bond with the Gems? Jade has big plans to be a successful netballer in her favourite position, Goal Attack. She comes from a super-competitive sports-mad family and wants to show everyone, her family included, that she's got what it takes. But so far, Jade's single-minded attitude has only succeeded in putting the rest of the Gems offside. Can Jade find a way to open up and let her teammates see that there is more to her than meets the eye? Perhaps a surprise friendship will teach Jade that she has to work with the team, not against them, to shine!
