Roy Race is living the dream. After all, how many 16-year-olds get to play up front for their favourite football team?
Except life as Melchester Rovers new star striker isn t easy. Everyone s looking at him differently, social media is a nightmare, and Rovers are still stuck at the bottom of the league.
All that, and he s still got to go to college, help out at home, and coach his little sister Rocky s football team. If he s going to cope, Roy better learn to be a team player and fast....

EPIC!Â -Â Match of the Day Magazine
I love the way that they are about so much more than football: they are about heart, values and family. Both graphic novel and fiction titles are compelling, engaging and a lot of fun. Lace up and get reading.Â -Â Jim Sells, Programme manager for Sport & Literacy, National Literacy Trust.
Read with my 7 year old who is football mad, really enjoyed it and left us wanting to read the next one in the series!Â -Â GoodReads Review
