Roy of the Rovers: From the Ashes

A Roy of the Rovers Fiction Book 5


ROVERS ON THE ROPES! From the Ashes is the fifth book in the football-tastic Roy of the Rovers fiction series. Part of the second season, this exciting series is written by award-winning author Tom Palmer.

Roy Race has the world at his feet. He’s playing Premier League football, earning plenty of money, has a great girlfriend, and things are even looking up at home. The only problem is, he’s not playing for Melchester Rovers. And the club he loves, the club he has supported all his life, the club that, until recently, he played for, is falling apart. Mel Park lies in ruins. Dodgy backroom deals brought Rovers low, and now Roy is determined to find a way back to his old club – and to lift it out of the mess it’s in. But he might have to break a few rules to do it…

Praise for the Roy of the Rovers series:

EPIC! – 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. – 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! – GoodReads
