Everything rests on the big game on Saturday. Jake is the soccer team’s super star player, and they’re counting on him for the big win. Counting. That’s the problem. In Jake’s head, that’s all that he can focus on. If only the numbers line up just right, then everything will be OK - his family will be safe, his team can win, his future will be secured, and he will be normal. He’s got the magic. He can make everything perfect. The question is, can he hold it together long enough. The clock is ticking . . . Written from Jake’s perspective, this is a gripping story detailing the constant inner battle with obsessive compulsive disorder.
