The Lovereading4Kids comment

Fans of Alex Ryder will love this new all-action hero, Freedom Smith created by debut novelist Kate Wild. Believe me, this is high-octane, mind-bending, fast-paced action adventure that will have you biting your nails and screaming for breath. The plot is original and although at times possibly a little too surreal, it is still an utterly unputdownable read and the writing is very straight forward. Boys, in particular from 10 or 11 upwards will love it, and girls will relate well to Java, the heroine in the story who stops at nothing to get to the truth. Firefight is the new book just out.

Ok, it’s tempting to say Fight Game will knock you out, that it pulls no punches, is hard-hitting…blah blah. But, really, Freedom Smith makes Alex Ryder look like a wimp! You’ll love Freedom. He’s a cheeky, charismatic outsider: a born undercover hero in a tough world of fighting factories, mysterious black motors, and policemen who think he’s guilty till proven innocent, because he’s pikey scum. Freedom Smith: freak fighter or extraordinary hero? You decide.

Synopsis

Fight Game by Kate Wild

Fifteen-year-old Freedom Smith is a born fighter - it's in his gypsy blood. Freedom's no angel, but he's no killer either. When falsely accused of murder, the law gives him the chance to prove his worth, by infiltrating a sinister fight game that's recruiting runaway boys. But what he discovers is something else. Something big.
