Synopsis

Black and White by Rob Childs

Josh is soccer-mad and can't wait to show off his ball skills to his new classmates. After all, he is the nephew of Ossie Williams - the best footballer in the country. Josh's arrival helps to give shy Matthew more confidence, but it is not welcomed by Rajesh, the school goalkeeper and captain. With important seven-a-side tournaments coming up, will the players be able to settle their differences and work together as a team? This title is also available as an ebook, in either Kindle, ePub or PDF editions

Reviews

This is an engaging, sporty story which is easily accessible to young readers... The book touches on racism but not in a heavy handed way. It also brings in girls - Leela is a star member of the team - and left handedness. It promotes positive ideas, such as the power of friendship, not telling tales and and not retaliating. The simple style and amount of snappy dialogue make it a good read for youngsters getting started, and the line drawings add liveliness to the text. School Librarian
