Lua Verwey is eintlik allergies vir seuns, maar sy is tog die enigste meisie wat saam met die krieketspan Kaap toe gaan toer. Mits sy voor die einde van die kwartaal genoeg name op haar borgvorm het om geld in te samel vir ’n vakansie langs die strand. En 'n vakansie het sy beslis nodig; want haar ma verwag 'n tweeling, haar boeties neem die huis op horings, haar oupa-hulle gaan by hulle kom intrek en haar beste vriendin is skielik superaaklig.
Rico is ’n danser. Hy is so maer soos spaghetti en so lig soos ’n muggie, maar sy droom is om rugby te speel! Hy skraap moed bymekaar en vra die afrigter of hy ook mag speel. Eers raak hy nie aan die bal nie en dan duik hulle hom plat, maar sodra die ruk-en-rol-musiek oor die luidspreker begin speel, word ’n rugbyster gebore. ’n Prenteboek gemik teen stereotipering en ’n storie wat die leser sal inspireer om sy of haar drome te volg!
#1 New York Times Bestseller From the mind of basketball legend and Academy Award-winning storyteller Kobe Bryant comes a new tale of finding your inner magic against all odds. GAME. SET. MAGIC. Game - Tennis means life and death for the residents of the magical kingdom of Nova, and for twelve-year-old Legacy, it's the only thing getting her through the long days taking care of the other kids at the orphanage. That's all about to change when she hears about Silla's tournament. Set - Silla, the ruler of Nova, hosts an annual tournament for the less fortunate of her citizens to come and prove themselves and win entrance to the Academy, where they can train to compete at nationals. The prize is Silla's favor and enough cash to keep open the orphanage, and Legacy has her heart set on both. Magic - What Legacy has yet to know is that the other players have something besides better skills and more money than she does. In Nova, tennis can unlock magic. Magic that Silla used to save the kingdom long ago and magic that her competitors have been training in for months already. Now, with the world turned against her and the orphanage at stake, Legacy has to learn to use her passion for the game to rise above those around her and shine.

Lua is nie soos enige meisie wat jy ken nie. Sy skat sy's die enigste een wat meer as een breinsel by haar ouers geërf het en sal eerder tyd op haar J-board spandeer as voor ’n spieël of die TV. Sy’s ook allergies vir seuns. Wat nogal vreemd is, aangesien sy drie boeties het. En ook omdat sy graag wil krieket speel, al sal sy die enigste meisie wees. Maar die krieketspan gaan see toe toer en sy kort beslis 'n vakansie weg van haar mal gesin af.

Being a dancer at New York’s most elite ballet school isn’t easy. Everyone wants to be the prima ballerina, and sometimes you have to play dirty.

Nicci is 'n willewragtig op 'n bergfiets. Die heel lekkerste is om die seuns se reaksie te sien wanneer hulle besef 'n meisie het vir hulle weggery. Tot die dag wat Nicci wreed aangeval en van haar fiets beroof word. Haar wêreld tuimel ineen. Wie sal so iets doen? Stuk-stuk pas Nicci en haar vriende Felicity en Donovan die legkaart inmekaar, en wat hulle uitvind toets hulle geloof in hulle medemens, en hulle eie waardes. Die boek daag ook geslags- en verhoudingstereotipes speels en slim uit. Nicci is ewe goed in ballet en bergfietsry, maar omdat sy 'n meisie is, verwag haar ouers en onderwysers dat sy vanselfsprekend ballet sal kies. Haar oë gaan ook oop oor die ou op wie sy verlief is, wat eintlik maar net 'n modelmooi meisie soek vir wie voorkoms en wat ander mense van haar dink, mees belangrik is. Sy vind in Donovan 'n ware vriend wat haar toelaat om haarself te wees.
