So I'm a girl who wants to play rugby. What's wrong with that

Another fantastic, genuine portrayal of teen life from Chris Higgins.

Charlotte doesn't want a lot - just to play rugby and for her dad to be proud of her. But her brother Will is the rugby star of the family, only he's got very different stars in his eyes.

Soon they're both keeping secrets and so is their mum! Plus Gran is acting stranger and stranger... It also doesn't help that her sworn enemy is the one boy she can't stop thinking about... Good thing she's known as Spider. She'll need all the help she can get to untangle this web!
