Synopsis

Bad Boys by Tony Bradman

Sometimes you have to FIGHT...Each year, City FC - known as 'the Hawks' - take on a group of thirteen-year-olds for the first tier of their special soccer school: training sessions in the evenings and weekends for truly talented players who are aiming to become professional players. It's a glamorous, exciting future for the few who succeed - with huge rewards. But the failure rate is also high...BAD BOYS, the second in the series, highlights a conflict between two players who want to play in the same position: Ben, who wants to be accepted as 'one of the lads', even if it means behaving badly; and Lee, who fights to make his own decisions, only to realize he's made the wrong choices..

About the Author

Tony Bradman

Tony Bradman was born in 1954 (not during the Jurassic era, as his children have been known to claim). He went to school in London, and then Cambridge University. After university he worked in the music press, then became Deputy Editor of Parents magazine, and began reviewing children’s books. He had his first book for children published in 1985 and became a full-time author in 1987.

Tony loves films and popular culture. He lives in Beckenham, Kent with his wife Sally and their three children Emma, Helen and Thomas and Rufus the cat.

TONY BRADMAN Q&A:

If you were a Viking warrior, what would your name be? And what about your battle cry?

Which of the places in the book would you most like to visit: Russia, Norway or Constantinople? Why?

If you were a Viking warrior, and could have any person from history/film/books in your gang – who would you choose? And Why? What would the gang be called?

I’d pick all the great Viking warriors – Harald Hardnut, Erik Bloodaxe, the Godwin brothers Tostig and Harold, maybe Thor the Norse God, Beowulf, Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas, Boromir and Faramir from Lord of the Rings and loads of others. What would we be called? Why The Cool Vikings, of course!
