Easy-going Scott and the more aggressive Kel are rival strikers for the same football team and often contemptuous of each other.

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 as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

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!
