The Big Star




More stunning soccer action from the best-selling series.

When Chris Weston tries out for the Area soccer squad, he sees some great football skills . . . and some dreadful showing off.

Carl Diamond, nephew of the famous international star Dazzler Diamond, seems to think he's good enough to play in the World Cup and, to be fair, his performance on the pitch is pretty stunning. But although he scores goal after goal, big-headed Carl knows all too well how good a player he is, and gets angry when other players don't meet his standard. Someone's going to have to put him in his place . . . but who?
