Francesca is a young girl who wants to play football in the park with the boys. But will they let her?

When she is told that girls can’t play football, Francesca leaves the park feeling sad and believing that girls and boys can’t do the same things. That is until her mum steps in with wonderful stories of famous women who were brave, strong and had the self-confidence to achieve their goals. After hearing these stories, will Francesca, along with her friend Ila, find her inner confidence and bravery to challenge the boys to a football match?

This book is designed to remind young girls and boys everywhere that they are strong and brave, and that with confidence, dreams really can come true!
