Reviews

It is not often that a story lingers with you long after you have read it. But this one does. Chis Ashley is a master storyteller who has explored a difficult and topical theme with outstanding skill. He keeps the reader fully entertained with a compelling fast moving, riveting plot. The characters are interesting and authentic... There are some stories you wish will never come to and end and this was won of them. I am sure that many primary children will enjoy this book. Highly recommended. Armadillo Magazine Enough football content to maintain the interest of sports fans whilst dealing with racial tensions, bullying and friends taking sides against each other. Books for Keeps
