Synopsis

Big Shot by Sean Callery

Danny's been having a tough time at school. But now his best friend Ash has made it even worse by telling everyone about his ballroom dancing classes. Will Danny and Ash manage to show everyone how good they really are at sports? Or will their risky behaviour get them into big trouble? Highly readable, exciting books that take the struggle out of reading, Wired Connect encourages and supports reading practice by providing gripping, age-appropriate stories for struggling and reluctant readers or those with English as an additional language aged 9+, at a manageable length (64 pages) and reading level (7+). Produced in association with reading experts at CatchUp, a charity which aims to address underachievement caused by literacy and numeracy difficulties.
