LoveReading View on The Number 7 Shirt

Interest Age 9 -14 Reading Age 8+. Perfect for reluctant or struggling readers. This is an action-packed story involving a boy who dreams of being a football pro. Because fiction and non-fiction are interwoven together, it’s likely to attract less keen readers but readers who may have a passion for football. His heroes all have the No. 7 on their shirt. Can he get there too? This book is part of Barrington Stoke’s ‘fyi’ series of gripping stories interwoven with stacks of fun facts.  

Perfect for Reluctant Readers as well as keen readers.
