The first book in THE DREAM TEAM series.
'Exciting, original and heart-warming' - Jacqueline Wilson
'Priscilla Mante is an author to watch' - Aisha Bushby
A relatable, inclusive story about families, unlikely friendships and girl power. Perfect for fans of Ella on the Outside and Jacqueline Wilson.
Olá! I'm Jasmina Santos-Campbell (but you can call me Jaz). You've probably heard of me and my football team the Bramrock Stars before. No? Well, you will soon because we're almost famous!
Forming the Stars was my genius idea - you see I need to prove to Mãe (that's my mum!) that I'm a football star so she'll want to come back home.
The idea was the easy part, though. Now I've got a team of seven very different girls and we need to work together, to be taken seriously as footballers.
We are the DREAM TEAM and we're going to show the world that girls CAN play football!
A great book about a girls' football team - it's exciting, original and heart-warming
A stunning and inspiring story that I raced through, cheering Jaz and her friends on as I read. Priscilla Mante is an author to watch.
An empowering read of friendship, family and football [...] that will encourage dreamers everywhere to shoot for the stars!
Exactly the book that my heart needed right now. It's an uplifting, fun celebration of girls in sport, and it's impossible not to root for Jaz and the rest of her team. I wish this book had been available when I was growing up!
