Can't I Just Kick It? by Helena Pielichaty book cover

What's it all about?

Tabinda has a problem; she's scared of heading the ball. The trouble is, if she told her dad he'd make such a fuss in front of her coach and everyone she'd want to crawl into a hole and hide. No, no, it was way better to keep her problem to herself and hope that nobody noticed, right?

Where did the idea come from?

Years ago a keen Manchester United supporter suggested I write a series about a girls' football team. I had so many other ideas going round my head at the time I didn't think any more about it until after I had finished Accidental Friends' I started planning my next big project and remembered the suggestion.

The more I thought about it, the more I warmed to the idea, and all that's left now is for me to finish the series and hope that everyone enjoys reading Girls FC.
