Sam Kerr hasn’t always been a soccer legend. She was an Aussie Rules tragic through and through. But when excluded from her team for being a girl, she has to change direction.
Her best friends Dylan and Indi reckon she should flip from AFL to soccer but with the pressure of learning the new rules, and the school bully Chelsa on her case, Sam has to learn fast!
The Kicking Goals bumper collection includes the first four exciting stories in this awesome series. It follows Sam’s journey from soccer newbie to playing in the finals! Inside you’ll find The Flip Out, A New Knight, Sports Day and Finals Fever.
Sam Kerr is the captain of the Australia women’s national soccer team – the Matildas – and a leading goal scorer for Chelsea in the English FA Women’s Super League.
