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; it will be popular with anyone who likes jokes and/or football, and is an easy enough read not to deter the weaker readers. It should find a happy place in any classroom. -- Rudolf Loewenstein OP The School Librarian

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
