With the Royal Academy of Sport for Girls end of year Athletics Carnival fast approaching, golden girl of the track, Josie Ingram, and her team mates are training hard together, with the hope of dominating the medal tally. It seems like nothing can stop them from reaching their dreams. However, when Josie finds out she is failing Maths and English her world is turned upside down.

Forced to concentrate on her schoolwork and banned from any track practice sessions, Josie feels like giving up. Everything she has trained for will mean nothing if she can’t compete.
