The Lovereading4Kids comment

Interest Age Teen Reading Age 8 Young footballer Baljit, the hero of Bali Rai’s Dream On, is preparing for a trial with Liverpool FC’s youth squad – something he’s dreamed of all his life. But there’s lots else going on in Baljit’s life – his girlfriend is worried that she’ll lose him; his best friend Danny’s hopes of a career in football may have been ended; and there’s a racist thug out to get him. Can Baljit work out a way to follow his dream without harming the people who matter to him most? Football-mad readers will love this, but so will anyone who likes their fiction fast-paced, involving and firmly rooted in contemporary life. I’ve really got to like Baljit and his family, and hope there’ll be more stories about them to come. ~ Andrea Reece
