Sam Scott is not your average 13-year-old girl. When Sam?s friends are off chasing boys, she?s on the local footy oval training for Richmond Juniors? upcoming matches. Her mother and father desperately want her to give up her obsession with football and get serious about law or medicine like her sister Kate. Sam is blitzing her junior Aussie Rules competition when two major disasters threaten to upset her season. First, she almost quits when the class snob calls her butch. Then, when she turns fourteen on the eve of the finals, red tape looks like forcing Sam out of the game she loves. Her battle to play makes her a public hero, but Sam soon realises that being a winner in the money-fuelled AFL world comes at a big price. From Cheryl Critchley, the author of UNSPOIL YOUR KIDS, ESCAPE THE PARENT TRAP, OUR FOOTY and REAL FANS VS BIG BUCKS, comes another book in the popular Junior Sports Series.
