The Dream Team: Charligh Green vs. The Spotlight



The second story in a heart-warming, inclusive and funny new series about three big F's: friends, following your dreams and football!

Charligh has always loved being the centre of attention - she's full of **pizzazz** and **star quality** and she was just born to be **very famous**, don't you know! The only problem is, she's beginning to attract attention for all the wrong reasons.

First of all, she and her very-nearly-world-famous team, the Bramrock Stars, have got a big football tournament to win. But no matter how hard she tries, Charligh keeps making mistakes, and soon her teammates are losing patience. Worse still, having landed the lead in the school play, Charligh finds no matter how hard she tries, she just can't learn her part. It's like the words won't stick in her head - but her teacher and the rest of the cast don't have time for excuses.

Luckily, help is on hand from someone in the most unlikely of places. Can Charligh proudly step into the spotlight, and remember what makes us different, is what makes us special?
