About the Book and Author
Anyone who understands how it feels to be outside of a friendship group will be able to empathise with Lily who is a shy but talented footballer navigating challenging friendships and anxiety at school.
Most of the time, Lily wishes that she could just disappear because she is naturally quite shy. 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?
This is a heartwarming book about friendship and fitting in
I really liked that Lily felt included when she joined the football group.
This book taught me that I should always make my friends feel included.
Also, if a true friend drifts away from you, I know they will always come back.
There are facts in the book about the history of girl’s football. Initially I was not sure about these parts but I grew to like them.
I would give this book ten out of ten.
