Go for the goal, Marta is inspired by soccer star and dribble queen Marta Vieira da Silva's upbringing.
There is nothing that can stop Marta with the ball! Not the players on the field. Not the flip flops. Not the brother. She is the fastest on the court where she dribbles and feints, and her dream is to one day be in the national team. But when an agent offers her a place at a soccer school in Rio, she doesn't know what to do. It's far from home, and she has to leave everyone she cares about. And above all, it costs a lot of money. Marta's mother says she can go if she gets the money herself. Now Marta's will is put to the test!
An exciting chapter book about growing up in poverty and fighting hard to challenge prejudice and achieve your dreams! Written by journalist Anja Gatu. Raffle scenes and real football.
