This was a story about football
I think that this is the first serie I have read
I actually loved this book because it was talking about my favourite sport which is football

So it was talking about a group of teenagers that broke into a football stadium and the manger was there but they had no idea so they kept on playing and the manager noticed that these boys had hidden talents and the manège wanted the boys to be on his team and win the cup and earn money !

It was a fun story
I liked how the i

The storytelling was excellent it really captivated me i felt like I was there. When the main character felt bad or sad I felt the emotion. I am a ten year old boy and I would recommend this book to girls and boys between ages 10 and 14.Just note that there is a bit of swearing but it's nothing too bad. This review was written by my son, Harry, who borrowed this book from the library.

I received a copy of this title for review from Allen & Unwin.

Ten Second Synopsis:
Blake is a star striker on his football team, but at home his mum is struggling to pay the rent. When Blake is offered the opportunity to earn some money by deliberately throwing his next match, it seems like the solution to Blake's rent problem is right in front of him.

This book is touted as "super-readable" by a helpful sticker on the back, and as a "low reading level, high interest" book, it is a great choic

Recommends it for: 10+
I thought this book was quite interesting towards the end but could have been more exciting at the beginning! I loved the character of Blake because he tried to help his mum with the rent. I would recommend this book to 10+ and I would give it 5/5!
