Girls F.C. Ponies Can't Take Penalties by Helena Pielichaty

Girls United is the best team for football and friendship. It's her team's first football tournament and Petra Ward can't wait to play. But her mum has some bad news: the match falls on the same weekend as her older sister Charlotte's important riding event. As usual, Charlotte (and the ponies) come first. Petra's compensation is a sleepover at her best friend Megan's house, but even that doesn't run smoothly as Megan invites team-mate Jenny-Jane along too. Petra wonders if anyone will ever put her first.
