The Dream Team: Jaz Santos vs. the World
The Dream Team: Jaz Santos vs. the World | Priscilla Mante
1 post | 1 read
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. Ol! 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 Me (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!

Priscilla Mante‘s debut contemporary novel for children aged 9+ (the first in a series) is strong on the importance of organisation, teamwork and facing your fears and great at promoting women‘s football while also tackling (no pun intended) the sexism that girls face in the game. However there are too many characters to get a real sense of who is who here and some quite stereotypical while the plot fairly predictable but I would still read on.
