The Soccer Diaries is a brand new series starring teenage footballer Rocky Race as she jets off from the UK to the USA to follow her football – sorry, soccer! – dreams.
In the first book of the series, Rocky Takes L.A., Rocky gets a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attend a prestigious soccer camp in California, USA.
Ready to pursue her dreams, she takes the chance, and begins a life-changing summer with new friends and new challenges.
But far from home, Rocky Race suddenly finds herself out of her comfort zone.
Fake friends, her own anxieties and a brand new world with strange rules all threaten to derail her new life before it’s even started – does Rocky have what it takes to succeed?
From the team behind the incredible Roy of the Rovers book series, award-winning children’s book author Tom Palmer returns for this brand new series that celebrates women’s football, alongside friendship, tackling anxiety, and lots of “soccer” action!
