Girls FC: Do Shinpads Come in Pink? by Helena Pielichaty

In book 11, Amy's story, there is excitement as the girls plan an end of season party. Amy is delighted - finally something she is good at! She may not be a natural footballer but she was born to organize parties.


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. (Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson) Helena Pielichaty has a light touch and an effortless way of telling a story. (Anne Cassidy)
