Author(s): Lisa Gibbs and Bernadette Hellard
Prani is the comedian of the Gems. She never takes anything too seriously, even netball, and loves having fun with her teammates. But when Coach Janet enters the Gems in a netball tournament and asks them to use set plays, everything changes. Now that there are more rules on the court, Prani can't move like she used to and begins to feel that she is letting the rest of the team down. Will Prani be able to find a way to continue playing her fun and fluid style of netball?
