Has Anyone Seen Our Striker? by Helena Pielichaty book cover

What's it all about?

10 year old Eve Akboh lives at home with her mum and two older brothers, Samuel and Claude. Her dad died when she was five but she still remembers him. Every goal she scores is a goal for her dad but when things go wrong on the team and she knows she's to blame, she stops scoring. Eve knows there's only one way to find her form again but with only a few matches left until the end of the season, time's running out.

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.
