Interest Age 11+ Reading Age 7+. Full of emotion and understanding but written in such a way that a struggling or reluctant reader will devour, Come On Danny is a hard hitting story describing the difficulties of dealing with life when everything goes wrong. Danny likes school and wants to do well. It makes up for the sad things in his life – his absent father, careless mother and the lack of money for anything. But then, even things at school begin to go wrong and Danny gives up until one day, his Dad turns up out of the blue…
Danny's dad is in prison. Home is hell. His teachers hate him. Is football the only way out? Gritty realism.
