Synopsis

Doing the Double by Alan (Alan Durant ) Durant

Twins Dale and Joe are the sons of fallen football ace Nicky Green. They have always joked about swapping their identities for a day, but suddenly everything changes - and now it's serious. Dale wants Joe to do the double and take his place on the football pitch. Joe isn't even sure he wants to help, but how can he refuse his twin? In the same style as the Shades 2.0 series, this book tells a fast-paced story but is much shorter than the Shades, allowing for less-able readers to still experience the gripping story but with much simpler language and a larger font. The excitement of the Shades series is still there in these shortened versions of the dramatic, enticing stories.
