Synopsis

Camp Gold: Going for Gold by Christine Ohuruogu

Maxine can't wait to start at Camp Gold International! But the minute she arrives, things start going wrong - her training isn't going well and, worse, someone has been vandalising the plush building. Now fingers are pointing at Maxine and her friends. When it happens a second time, the principal makes it clear that if the vandals don't stop, the camp may have to be closed. For Maxine, Camp Gold means everything. Can she solve the mystery and focus on training ...and win?

Reviews

the books show a wonderful insight into the world of sport and into the lives of those talented people who want to become part of sport at the highest level. Parents in Touch Perfect for teens who have been inspired by the 2012 Olympics, Running Stars and Going for Gold are superb stories Spirit FM If ever anyone is qualified to write a children's story about young athletes and their adventures it must be Christine Ohuruogu. The silver medal winner at the London Olympics, writing with Paul May, has begun the successful series Camp Gold and her latest story, Going for Gold has the principal character Maxine and her athletic friends training at Camp Gold International. Everything seems to go downhill. Maxine's race times are not good, and even worse, acts of vandalism mean that the camp may have to close. Whether they are couch potatoes or would be Ohuruogus, the nines-plus will find this easy enjoyable reading. Newbury Weekly News
