(Age: 7+) Recommended. Easy to read. Champion Charlies is a hilarious junior fiction series of books for boys and girls that celebrates the great game of football. The grand finale is Book 4 in the series. Others reviewed are The mix-up and The Knockout Cup.
The Jets have reached the Grand Final against their arch rivals, The Hammerheads. The build up to the game is intense and a few of the Jets are starting to crack under the pressure. To make matters worse, CJ's sworn enemy, Lenny 'the gorilla' Lincoln, is leading the attack for the Hammerheads. It's up to Charlotte to get the Jets back on track. But will her tactics be enough when they're out on the field?
