Book Description

“If I was a boy, you’d let me play,” grumbled Gertrude.
“Yeah,” Flynn agreed. “But you’re not a boy. You’re a girl.”

Gertrude wants to play footy. But the coach of the school footy team won’t let her play and the boys just laugh at her.
If she were a boy, things would be different. So Gertrude decides to become a boy – just to play one game of footy.
When a medical certificate keeps Gertrude away from school, “Gav”, the new kid, arrives. He quickly makes friends and the footy team.
For Gertrude, the Friday footy game is not all she thought it would be. For the coach, Gav is his star player. Gav decides to hang around for the rest of the school term.

Gertrude is treading a fine line as she desperately tries to hide her secret. She gets to play footy, but she also has two lots of homework to do!
When she is hurt at training one night, the truth comes out. Gertrude is in trouble with the coach, the school principal and her parents. Worse than any of that was the look on her best friend Flynn’s face. Has she lost his friendship forever?

This is a great read for all those who believe that the World needs to be a more equal place, and your gender shouldn't define what you are allowed to do. Gertrude is a lovable character whose pragmatic approach to getting her own way shows ingenuity, but also a great deal of care and concern for all those around her, so that her actions may not win over all her friends, but most certainly will not worry anyone. I highly recomment this - well written and carefully thought out.
