Description

Ben dreams of becoming a rich and famous footballer. He's just finished secondary school and has a team trial lined up. He can't afford not to get selected. But things don't go the way he'd planned, and when he meets a mysterious man called Blackwood, everything starts to change. Ben gets pulled into a criminal underworld and all his dreams are shattered. Ben realizes how stupid he's been, but he's in too deep. Then help comes from the most unexpected source.

Focusing on one of the four main characters in the series 'The Travellers', this book is a great read as well as an effective way of coming to understand the world of travelling (gypsy) communities, through the eyes of one of four young teenagers. Offering interesting insights into the way travelling communities live and work, and contradicting many stereotypical assumptions about travellers and non-travellers alike, this book is perfect for any reader who wishes to know more about a different way of life.
