So What If I Hog The Ball? by Helena Pielichaty book cover

What's it all about?

Jenny-Jane can't believe that the new away strip is pink. Pink! Of all the colours in all the world why did Tabinda's dad have to pick that one? Well, she wasn't wearing it. Hannah could keep her on the bench the whole season for all she cared. She had enough changes going on with her horrible brothers and useless new teachers at the unit. Wearing pink was one change too many.

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.
