Team Justin

How do you become a good team player?

It’s tournament time – in Denmark! After a day on the ferry with the buffet and duty-free, Frida and Justin are more than ready for the football cup – and for the disco, fairground and all the other good stuff Denmark has to offer. And maybe Aisha, who’s as new to the team as Frida, will be joining them too!

But how do you become a good team player when all you really want to do is be a goal-scoring superstar? And what will Frida do when she discovers something that could ruin both the team and her new friendships?
