This funny, clever novel for readers of nine and upwards explores gender identity and comes up with some surprising answers. Frances is so obsessed with football that she is banned from the girl's team, and the local boys' team The Tigers refuse to have her too. Then Frances has her great idea: by getting the right clothes and practising in her bedroom she becomes Frank, a tough macho boy. Frank is accepted by The Tigers straightaway and becomes their top goal-scorer. But it isn't so easy after all pretending to be a boy, as Frances/Frank soon discovers.
