IT’S TOUGH AT THE TOP!

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….

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 Review
