Australia is sports-crazy and here is the perfect book for girls who love football, written by a gorgeous football tragic, Liz Deep-Jones!
Lucy just wants to play football, but she is a girl torn between two worlds.
Lucy Zeezou's family is famous for two things in Italy: football and fashion. They're prime paparazzi fodder. Lucy's pushy Australian-born mother wants her to model for the family's fashion label. And even worse- Lucy's father, captain of Milan's premier football team, agrees! Shouldn't he be happy that Lucy is more passionate about playing 'the beautiful game' than being a beautiful clothes horse?
Lucy's been leading a double life, playing on the sly, and when she and her mother move from Milan to Sydney to be near Lucy's Australian grandparents, Lucy has to find a new team. Eventually she'll have to come clean about who she really is and what she really wants.
Everyone's making plans for Lucy's future. But will she get to pursue her own dreams on the pitch?
Fast-paced and full of exciting adventures, Lucy Zeezou's Goal combines a rollicking story with fun fashion and fantastic football to make this book a must-have read for any girl- whether she's into sports or summer collections.
