Álex is a future soccer star. Every body knows: he is the best player you’ve ever seen. But he is always in a bad mood. His father is the city major and makes everything he can for Álex to succeed. Álex hides a secret we can just guess in this book. Even if he doesn’t recognize it, he is becoming a very good friend of Gabriel y Blanca, but his best friend is Daniel, who bares all his rudeness. Amaya joins the group. She wants to be a footballer, but she is always in the bench because her mother has forbidden it. Finally, the match of The Invincible against The Planets is called!


Each book in this collection has as main characters a group of boys and girls who play in the football team The Planets. The main plot of each book is a football game, but before each game, the group must face a previous adventure that will test them. They must face their fears, their secrets, their feelings... The collection also pays special attention to issues of cross interest such as solidarity, teamwork, tolerance and plurality.
