'Meet Maddy and her friends from the Gems!

'Maddy can't wait to play her first game of netball with her new team. She's been training hard and is eager to try out her skills. But Maddy's excitement soon turns to nerves when she realises that things might not go exactly as she imagined. What position will coach Janet put her in? What if she gets asked to sit on the bench? Suddenly, the netball courts are the last place Maddy wants to be!

'Perhaps some inspiration from one of the Australian Diamonds players will finally get Maddy hooked on netball!'

'Can shy Phoebe find her place in the Gems?

'Phoebe loves to shoot goals, and she's great at it too. She dreams of being a famous netballer and playing in front of thousands. The problem is that she's nervous all the time, even around her teammates – and there are only seven of them! Why can't she make friends as easily as Lily and Sienna? Things don't get any easier when her overenthusiastic dad starts coaching from the sidelines. Could anything be more embarrassing?

'Will a mystery puzzle and a new netball idol give Phoebe the confidence she needs to become a true member of the team?'
