Hit It! by Michael Hardcastle


Hit It! by Michael Hardcastle

Easy-going Scott and the more aggressive Kel are rival strikers for the same football team and often contemptuous of each other. But with their team's place in the league at stake they need to start to work together. In the end, it is the events off the pitch that will help to build the confidence and respect that each boy needs in order to play his best.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
