About Book

Frances is, quite simply, obsessed with football - not just as a supporter but as a player. Only trouble is, she's a girl and girls' teams don't get any decent fixtures. But when a big one does come up - against a boys' team - she is barred from practising until the match. She has to play somehow and so she does an extraordinary thing: she disguises herself as a boy and joins The Tigers. So far so good, but what will happen on the big day when she finds herself having to play for both sides ...?

Funny, clever and surprisingly credible, this is a book for all young football fans of nine and upwards.
