Footie-mad Robbie is lying in a coma after being hit by a car. Now he’s locked in his body, unable to move or speak. As Robbie lies on the hospital bed, thoughts drift through his mind: thoughts of his life outside, his family and friends, his parents’ separation and his school life. But nobody seems able to reach in and get Robbie to hear them. Even Zola, his favourite Chelsea footballer, is unable to get Robbie to wake up. But one day, against hospital rules, Dad brings Robbie’s dog Lucky into the hospital. Can Lucky do the impossible, and bring Robbie back to life?
Fusing ingredients that boys love – dogs and football – and exploring a situation of the deepest gravity with warmth and understanding, this marvellous and unusual book tackles the subject of serious illness in a way that children can instantly relate to.
