The Lovereading4Kids comment

A robust and entertaining football story about a family with enough players in it to make their own five-a-side team! Charlie tells of the mounting excitement as she and her brothers fight their way into the final. They are all set for the great day when a huge snow storm dramatically changes the plans. Will they be able to get back together in time and will there even be a match?

Synopsis

Snow Goalie by Sophie Smiley

Charlie and her brothers are in the final of the local five-a-side tournament, and they need to practise hard. But when it snows heavily overnight, their plans soon change. Charlie's brother, Bobby, is marooned in the snow and she must attempt a daring adventure to rescue him. But with the team reunited once more, how will they manage to play on the frozen pitch, never mind win the game?

Reviews

The story is peppered with plentiful football references as well as with a few well placed jokes
