What is this book about?

This is the story of a teen girl looking to prove herself to the male dominated gaming community. What’s the problem? No one knows she’s a gamer.   By day, Emilia is a field hockey star with a popular boyfriend and a mother obsessed with her academic future. But by night, she’s kicking virtual butt as the only female member of a highly competitive eSports team. Emilia has mastered the art of keeping her two worlds thriving, which hinges on them staying completely separate.

When a major eSports tournament comes to her city, Emilia is determined to prove herself to the male-dominated gaming community. But her perfectly balanced life is thrown for a loop when a member of a rival team—Jake—recognizes her . . .

This is a sweet and charming debut YA romance that will win the hearts of gamers and non-gamers alike.
