Girls FC by Helena Pielichaty

Girls FC is the best team for football and friendship. This twelfth book in the series comes round full circle as Megan Fawcett, whose brilliant idea it was to set up the team in the first place, takes up the story again. 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. In 2010 Walker Books paired up with the English Schools Football Association, which reaches out to 30,000 girls and 6,000 teachers, to make Girls FC the official sponsor of its National Under 11s Girls seven-a-side cup.


Helena Pielichaty has a light touch and an effortless way of telling a story. (Anne Cassidy) 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)

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

At @HHSHaringey we love @lovereading4kids because our pupils can practice reviewing & get free upcoming books before anyone else!

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.

Writing reviews help the children with their literacy skills and we always read the books together which gives us good quality family time!

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

Sam Harper – age 10

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
