|A thrilling reworking of Macbeth, set in the world of football. |
|Banksie and his friend MacB are football mad, they are also very good players, but there is a lot of competition to get into the school team.
A fortune teller promises they will both be captain, but Duncan King is already in that position and nobody plays better or scores as many goals as him. It would take something awful like an accident to put Dunk out of action, but when that actually happens Banksie begins to wonder if it was really just an accident. Or is something more sinister going on? |
|This is a great book for boys, especially those who generally finding reading boring. It's set in the world of football and there are lots of match descriptions in it. |
|This is a highly original working of Macbeth, I'm no great lover of football stories, but I found this a compelling read. Arksey writes with feeling and speed, he easily creates a world that is believable and keeps the pace of the novel moving along all the way through |
|This review by Mrs Mad. |
|Banksie and MacB have spent all summer working to get into the football team. The pay-off is polished skills. A fortune teller promises they will both be captain. No one plays better than Duncan King, captain and star striker. But then Duncan has an accident. If it is an accident. |
