There's never a dull day with Adele: she's a star footballer with a rotten family, an aching heart, and an impossible frenemy. As pressures at school and home mount, will she overcome all or will she crash and burn? Fighting with her best friend Michaela, texting and kissing her first boyfriend and dealing with her screwed up family, you would think this girl was busy enough, yet she still finds the time to get herself into trouble. When everything collapses, Adele realizes she can only rely on herself to sort things out. Vibrant, witty, thrill-seeking, unconventional and charismatic black female teen protagonist. A feminine take on the football world, being a teenager and figuring out who you are.
