Lena plays football properly, for a club, with a coach and everything. But Mum says she’s got to stop. Not because Mum doesn’t like football, but because Lena has failed yet another maths exam. Maths is by far the vilest subject in the world. What does she care whether eight times six is forty-eight or not? When she grows up, she’ll use a calculator anyway. It’s just a pain that Mum doesn’t see it like that …
