Publisher Summary
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.

When Emma and her siblings want to get a kitten and another ferret, and Emma wants their nanny to be the chaperone on her soccer team trip, the children decide to go on strike to try to force their parents to meet their demands.
