Product Description

A quick-read futuristic thriller by a former Children’s Laureate. Get to the good bits faster. Can you imagine never being able to touch anyone? That’s the reality in this book’s post-apocalyptic world. Everyone wears non-contact suits to survive. Touching is outlawed. But now Cal and Jenna have formed a football team. Not virtual football: the real thing, with real contact. Can they show others that making contact is also what makes us feel alive? This short book is great for any kid, but it has extra help for kids who find reading tough. Tell all your friends (especially the dyslexic ones) about it!
