The Lovereading4Kids comment
Girls FC is a series that has filled a gap brilliantly for the ever increasing numbers of football mad girls aged 7-11. Narrated by 10 year old midfielder Jenny-Jane Bayliss the book is packed full of football and friendship. The Parrs Under 11s kick off their second season but Jenny-Jane isn’t happy, she’s fed up of everyone getting at her, especially her horrible family. All she wants to do is play football – why can’t they just leave her alone?
A message from Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson
‘This book makes football a fun activity that isn’t just for boys and I hope reading the series will encourage more girls to get involved in sport from an early age’

Girls FC 7: So What if I hog the ball ? by Helena Pielichaty
Girls FC: the best team for football and friendship. Nothing seems to be going right for ten-year-old Jenny-Jane Bayliss. First, a fire at her team's clubhouse stops her from celebrating her birthday, then the coach starts getting on at her for hogging the ball too much - and then, worst of all, her horrible brother Billly-Ray orders her to start stealing again. This time from her team-mates. Jenny-Jane doesn't know what to do. If she doesn't do it, he'll make her life unbearable, but she can't steal from her friends - can she? Women's football is the fastest growing sport in the world. In the UK one million girls play and more than 9,000 girls' teams are registered with the FA.
Helena Pielichaty has a light touch and an effortless way of telling a story. - Anne Cassidy
