Shola's Game by Shawn DurkinShola has just moved to this country. Here, he feels like an outsider...Back in Nigeria he was a football star. But, now, Shola has to learn a new sport. Will this game called 'hockey' - ice hockey - help him feel at home...? Books aren't your thing? Don't worry. You just haven't read the right ones yet. These books are 'page-turners'. Whether they are funny or exciting, or emotional, they are all about believable people. This isn't Hogwarts, it's the real world. They are designed, first and foremost, to be really enjoyable - great stories that will have you hooked from the first page and won't let up - or let you down - until you've finished. Basically, they don't muck about: they start off gripping, and keep up with the action until the very last page. The books have everything from trappings, snow disasters, Arctic strandings, bullies, mystical horses, hackers, missing kids, juvenile prison, death-defying crashes, ghosts, divorce, hold-ups, death and honour, street gangs, drugs, intense sport...you name it. So whatever your 'flava', we have something to tickle your fancy. Pick one up and enjoy the ride...
