Charlie Fry is football mad. He sleeps wearing his team's full kit and dreams of scoring the winning goal in an FA Cup final. He plays football around the clock - at the park, on the way to school, at lunchtimes and even in his bedroom until his mum tells him off. But Charlie has a problem: he can't run very far. He has plenty of skill but his poorly lungs stop him from sprinting. And as an 11-year-old planning to become the Golden Boot winner at the next World Cup, that's a bit of an issue. Then one day a freak accident presents Charlie with a unique goal-scoring gift - it means he can't miss. But can Charlie convince his local team Hall Park to give him the chance and use his new found skill to deadly effect? Or will the nasty bullies from his school keep him stuck on the sidelines? ** The Football Boy Wonder is a football story for children aged 7-13. It looks at themes such as bullying, friendship, loyalty and the wonderful world of football. Reviews of the Football Boy Wonder: "Highly recommended. An enjoyable and clever story with a few lovely twists along the way." Amazon review. "My little brother, who is crazy about soccer, would love this book and would never let it go. It is a great gift to get a brother, nephew, son or cousin for any occasion. They will definitely enjoy it." 5* review from Readers' Favourite website. "Fantastic journey of friendship and sporting achievements. Well written and easy to understand Charlie's journey and how CF impacts his life." Amazon review.
