Girls FC 9: We're the Dream Team, Right?

Written by Helena Pielichaty, Sonia Leong

Part of the Girls FC Series

Girls FC 9: We're the Dream Team, Right? Synopsis

Girls FC: the best team for football and friendship. Being the daughter of someone famous isn't easy, and as the kid of an ex-Premiership footballer, Gemma Hurst has had more than her fair share of the media spotlight. She worries constantly about inevitable fuss if he is recognized and so she tries to keep his identity a secret: she won't let him come to any of her football matches and he has never met her team-mates. But when Gemma's best friend Eve urgently needs a lift home after training one day, she is forced to overcome her fears and tell Eve the truth. Gemma can trust Eve of all people - can't she?
