Sporty Girl Books for Football Fans

Superbowl Sunday is coming up this weekend. In 2014, we had a post that shared books a girl who likes football might enjoy. You can find that post here. I intended to post today about all the new books that have come out since then about girls who play football -- but I only found one and it came out in 2010. Publishing companies, it's time for some more!

Cinderella in Cleats by Carly Syms
 It started just like any other Saturday: Whitney, her best friend, Jason, and their fathers tossed an old football around in the park. But when her dad dies of a heart attack, Whitney doesn't realize her passion for the sport and her friendship with Jason will never be the same. 

Two years later, Whitney's ready to begin the long journey of re-discovering her love for football, encountering a sexist coach, an unethical but irresistible opponent, a mustard yellow T-shirt, and Jason along the way.

How many boys, romance, and hits on the field can Whitney handle before it becomes too much and she's forced to throw in the towel on her dreams?

Is there a football book we've missed? Please help us out and tell us in the comments below.
