The Lovereading4Kids comment

Here at Lovereading we were more than a little sceptical about this new series featuring football and girls, but after handing the title round to a number of 8+ year old girls the universal reaction was hugely positive. Kids who might not read much picked it up and devoured it, whilst book lovers enjoyed it too. Friendship, families, fashion, school and football all collide in a terrific mix of girl power and fun. The author is of course also the writer of the novel of the hit film Bend it like Beckham so you can be sure the writing is great and full of humour. The second title in the series, Lauren’s Best Friend is due in October 09 with two further due in the first half of 2010 so you won’t have too long to wait for the next brilliant instalment!

Synopsis

The Beautiful Game: Hannah's Secret by Narinder Dhami

Hi, I'm Hannah, and I'm the future captain of the England women's football team! Ha ha -- only kidding. Although my dad seriously thinks so, which is embarrassing with a capital E. He's always yelling at me when I play -- it's a nightmare! At least I've got football, and five new mates to keep me happy.

And there's my BIG SECRET, too -- just promise you won't tell...Hannah xxx

About the Author

Narinder Dhami

Narinder Dhami is one of the four authors of the Rainbow Magic series, written under the name of Daisy Meadows.She now lives in Cambridge with her husband and her cats.

Dhami's father was an Indian immigrant from the Punjab who arrived in the UK in 1954, and her mother is English.[1] She grew up in a multi-cultural environment, with Indian and western cultures both major influences in her life, and was educated at Wolverhampton Girls' High School and Birmingham University, where she took a degree in English in 1980. Dhami started working as a teacher, and for the next nine years she taught in primary and secondary schools in Essex and in the London borough of Waltham Forest. During this time, she began writing stories for teenage magazines, and contributed many photo-stories to the now-defunct Jackie magazine, published by DC Thomson. Eventually, Narinder gave up teaching for a full-time writing career. For the last few years, she has concentrated on contemporary realistic fiction about young girls of Asian origin growing up in modern Britain. Her Babes trilogy is extremely popular with girls between 9 and 14 years of age.
