Ginny Weasley is where she used to dream to be someday. She is being hailed as the next great Quidditch player. She is the starting Chaser on the Holyhead Harpies and is playing Seeker for the first Unified United Kingdom Quidditch World Cup team. However, Ginny has discovered that being a 'Quidditch star' has costs. You have no privacy, and people will talk about you, saying things that have little or no foundation in truth.
Ginny is facing a turning point in her life. She will be going up against Viktor Krum and the favored Bulgarians. She also has a long term contract with the Harpies awaiting a signature after the match.
And there's always Harry Potter, the other part of her dream. Can she or does she still want both of them as the main part of her life?
