Author(s): Donna King

Young Adult Fiction

A family move from sunny Florida to the cold north of England leaves Tyra Fraser lonely and troubled. Out-going, fun-loving Tyra wants to fit in by playing football for the school team, but they need a new coach and a lot of hard work if they're going to win a single game. With her little sister causing trouble at home and problems fitting in at school, Tyra's got a lot to deal with... "Unbeatables" are sports stories for girls, featuring attractive, feisty heroines with a talent for sport. Each novel features a popular sport with girl-appeal, from tennis to ice-skating. Lively, fast-paced plots show each heroine coping with problems that have the potential to affect her sporting success and happiness, but hard work and talent win through in the end. Tyra Fraser's family have just moved from Florida to Yorkshire, where her father, a US Army captain, is now based. Tyra desperately wants to move back. She misses her friends and the football team she used to play for. At home, her little sister Shirelle is autistic and takes up all her parents' time. At school, Tyra struggles to fit in.
