The Transfer

Written by Terence Blacker

The Transfer Synopsis

Stanley is a football-mad 11 year-old whose beloved team, City, faces relegation from the Premiership. His mother is a football-hating computer scientist. In desperation, Stan accesses her `cybertelekinesis' program to create Lazlo, a genius striker who can save City. By a risky process of mental and electronic energy, he turns himself into Lazlo - and gets himself on to the City team. Stanley's greatest dream is about to become true - but it turns into a nightmare when he can't get back into his own body again . . .

The Transfer Press Reviews

'A potent source of fantasy for the soccer-mad.' The Daily Telegraph; 'What a goal!' The Times; The Transfer is in a league of its own. Blacker fuses two junior fiction obsessions - football and computers - into a compulsively readable story...Fantasy football as it should be for nine to twelve year-olds.' The Sunday Telegraph
