Join the Girls FC as they show the world what it really means to play like a girl ! Hey! Petra Ward here. I can't wait to play in my first football tournament, but it clashes with my sister's show-jumping event... And in our family, ponies ALWAYS come first. It's the Girls FC's first ever tournament and Petra can't wait to play. She's not exactly the best defender, but she loves being part of the team - and to spend time with her best friend Megan, the team captain. Then her mum delivers the bad news: the match falls on the same weekend as her older sister Charlotte's riding event. As usual, Charlotte (and the ponies) are her mum's number one priority... This is the second book in Helena Pielichaty's fun, topical early-reader series; join the Girls FC as they take the world by storm! 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 on Girls FC 1
