A shy but talented footballer navigates challenging friendships and anxiety at school in this touching tale from acclaimed author Eve Ainsworth.

Lily always feels a little bit left out. Shy and anxious, she finds school really hard, particularly as most of the other girls all seem so confident. Most of the time, Lily wishes that she could just disappear. But during a game of football in PE, Lily’s teacher spots her natural talent and invites Lily to join the local girls’ team, where she starts to make friends with some of the other players. Finally, she thinks she’s found a place where she fits in, but will a vicious argument with one of her teammates put all her progress in jeopardy?

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This sensitively told story, beautifully illustrated by Luna Valentine, is peppered with fascinating football facts as Lily navigates the challenges of anxiety and friendships. The perfect read for young football fans… and to help build confidence in any shy youngster." – Lancashire Post "This book will resonate with any reader who has found their friendship in crisis, fanned by the flames of social media. This football-themed novella's a winner in the back of the net" – The School Librarian "Brilliantly alternating between Lily's story and the history of the women's game in the UK, this is an absolute belter." – Teacher "This combination of narrative and information text, within a beginner reader is sure to interest those with a passion for football and those without. With the FIFA World Cup due to kick off soon, this is a great book for upper KS2 readers who are beginning to read chapter books with confidence and a great topical addition to the class library shelf." – Just Imagine, blog
