Josh and Mo are twins who both go along to watch Oldchester Athletic every Saturday. The team are three games away from winning promotion to the Premier League and are also through to the cup finals at Wembley. Josh is very excited about all this but his sister Mo doesn't get very excited about football and can take it or leave it. Mo buys some peanuts and swallows the 'peanut of power' which gives her the most extraordinary good luck. The slimey owner of Oldchester decides he needs her for the team mascot to ensure that team gains promotion and wins the cup . . .
A lively and fun story about football, featuring a likeable reluctant hero, and nice flashes of fantasy.
