Summary
"Meet Ellyse Perry, age twelve ... All Ellyse wants to do is play sport. Cricket, soccer, touch footy, athletics - you name it! But now that she's in high school, playing sport and having fun doesn't seem so simple. For starters, there's more homework, and a mix-up with her electives has her stuck with debating! Ugh. Then her friends Jazz and Charlie don't invite her to go roller-skating. To top it off, mean Ms Parks won't let her on the school cricket team because she thinks Ellyse is too small. Could life be more unfair? Luckily, she still has club cricket. Her team is a sure bet to make the grand final, and Ellyse can't wait to get out onto the pitch with her mate Jamie. Will Ellyse be able to handle the challenges of high school and still find time for all her sports?"--Back cover
