LoveReading View on Fame Thing

One of our Super Readable Books of the Year 2016 | Interest Age 8-12  Reading Age 8 |  In a nutshell: funny story of football, fandom and fame |   George is over the moon when she finds out her favourite footballer Dean Johnson has moved into the massive mansion in her home town, and even more excited when she actually meets him. He seems really nice, but that’s not what the papers say: has he invited her to the cup final to talk football, or just to exploit a PR opportunity? A different take on the football story, this is fun and easy to read, and the banter between George and her mates is top division stuff. ~ Andrea Reece
