Like lightning/you strike/fast and free/legs zoom/down field/eyes fixed/on the checkered ball/on the goal/ten yards to go/can't nobody stop you/can't nobody cop you... Twelve-year-old Nick is a football-mad boy who absolutely hates books. In this follow-up to the Newbery-winning novel The Crossover, football, family, love, and friendship take centre stage as Nick tries to figure out how to navigate his parents' break-up, stand up to bullies, and impress the girl of his dreams. These challenges - which seem even harder than scoring a tie-breaking, game-winning goal - change his life, as well as his best friend's. This energetic novel-in-verse by the poet Kwame Alexander captures all the thrills and setbacks, the action and emotion of a World Cup match.

Join Girls FC as they show the world what it really means to play "like a girl"! "Hi! We're twins Dylan and Daisy McNeil. We're meant to write the match-reports for our football team, but we keep getting muddled - our granny says we're something called 'dyslexic'..." Daisy and Dylan love playing football, but their captain Megan isn't very happy when they make a mess of the match-reports. The twins can't seem to arrive on time for their matches, either - though living in a chaotic household, which includes ballet-mad twin brothers and countless pets, certainly doesn't help. Luckily, their Scottish granny knows just how they can turn things around! This is the fourth in a twelve-book series about women's football, with each charmingly-written book focusing on a different member of the football team and a different issue - all building up to the final book, which explores the future of the team as the original Girls FC moves on to secondary school. "This book ... will encourage girls to get involved in sport from an early age." -Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson on Girls FC 1
