Girls F.C. Is an Own Goal Bad? by Helena Pielichaty


Girls F.C. Is an Own Goal Bad? by Helena Pielichaty

Girls United is the best team for football and friendship. Twins Daisy and Dylan love playing football, but try as they might, they are always late for matches. Living in a converted windmill with a scatty mum, a disorganized dad, ballet-mad twin brothers and countless pets doesn't help. Unfortunately the twins' laid-back attitude annoys some of their teammates. Luckily their Scottish granny is on hand with some tactics of her own to get the twins to arrive on time!
