Emma has a new dilemma. Her traveling soccer team has its first game in Washington, DC, and she wishes Annie, the family's totally cool Irish nanny, can be her team chaperone. Mom wants to go, but Mom doesn't know the difference between a shin guard and a soccer ball. Not only that, she'd never let Emma's ferret stay at the hotel. And the ferret is their good luck charm. Finally, Mom doesn't really understand Emma's problem with Katie, the ball hog on the team who has been trying to take over Emma's position. Then there's the problem of the two pets that are hiding in Annie's apartment on the third floor. How does Emma solve so many problems all at once? With her usual cleverness and drive, she finds out that families and soccer teams have a lot in common.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In the third Emma Dilemma title, nine-year-old Emma's soccer team is headed to Washington, D.C., and the trip poses plenty of dilemmas for Emma, both at home and on the team. Emma is a lively protagonist who faces everyday ethical issues and learns to look beyond her own wants to consider others. The descriptive prose incorporates soccer elements, sometimes droll scenarios, and feelings readers will recognize, including Emma's desire to be the best at something. Underlying the story are messages about the importance of honesty and communication, as well as the challenges and unexpected rewards of compromise.--Rosenfeld, Shelle Copyright 2008 Booklist"
