Product description

Unique football fiction that hammers the ball into your deepest heart. Football: it’s the beautiful game. But it’s more than a game. It’s triumph and heartbreak and passion and glory. It’s the essence of life. Tough-talking sports journalist Paul Faustino is a lifelong fan. Now he’s reporting on three mysteries involving the world’s greatest players. A legendary goalie’s eerie secret. A vanished teenage football prodigy. A star player brought down by a rival. Football stories like you’ve NEVER read before. Love, death, magic, murder and the media. Carnegie winner Mal Peet was a writer who knew the score.

  • Football fiction that takes the game into a thrilling new dimension
  • Written by Carnegie Medal winner Mal Peet, who died in 2015
  • “A blast of fresh air… so strong and vibrant, so passionate” – INIS
  • “Glorious, cartwheeling, magical, frightening” – Frank Cottrell Boyce
