Synopsis

Long Shot by Cindy Jefferies, Seb Goffe

Roddy Jones has just started Stadium School and has made some equally passionate and determined friends, none more so than Jimmy. He is a gifted player and easily outshines his rival, Jack. And with first team selection round the corner, Jimmy is sure to be chosen. Nothing can hold him back from realising his footballing dream...except his lucky socks. But when one sock goes missing, Jimmy's superstitions leave him in doubt. Then a note appears telling Jimmy he will get his sock back, but only if he walks the forbidden and haunted old stadium grounds at midnight. Desperate for his lucky sock, will Jimmy risk breaking school rules, or can Roddy help lay his ghosts before they consume him, or worse, expel him...

About the Author

Before becoming a full-time writer Cindy Jefferies had a varied career that had nothing to do with writing, including being a Venetian-mask maker and a video DJ. Cindy's first novel, Sebastian's Quest, was published by Barry Cunningham at Chicken House. Now she is best known for her popular series Fame School (Usborne) set at a school for the performing arts. Stadium School is Cindy's first book co-written with her son Seb, who is perhaps even more football-mad than the books' characters. When not thinking about football, Seb plays in an indie band.
