A witty lively novel, Being Me is the perfect companion to The Silent Striker, a feminine take on the football world. Meet Adele Vialli: 14 years old, a star footballer. With an aching heart and an impossible frenemy. She is intelligent, funny and resourceful, yet gets into fights all the time. She finds school boring compared to shoplifting, hanging out with her footballer boyfriend, Marcus from The Silent Striker, and having fun making trouble. As the weary school counsellor says: 'there's never a dull day with Adele'.
