In this wonderfully written book, Thembi Kgatlana tells the story of her humble beginnings in Mohlakeng. She knew that she had the talent for football, and a dream to play one day for South Africa, but she was always told, Girls Don’t Do That: girls don’t play football, and girls certainly don’t play for their country!
Girls Don't Do That
Thembi’s hard work, her determination and ability to put the insults behind her led her to play for Banyana Banyana and to be named the greatest player on the African continent. The book is beautifully illustrated by the award-winning illustrators Chantelle and Burgen Thorne.
