Description

Dale and Joe are twins, and they are both great football players. That's no surprise - their dad is the football legend Nicky Green. They've always laughed about doing the double - pretending to be each other for a day. Just for a joke. When Dale gets himself injured, he wants Joe to do the double for real. Otherwise Dale will get thrown out of the team. Can Joe refuse his twin?

Recently republished as a new edition, this book is one of the Shades 2.0 series. This book is perfect for reluctant teens who still want an exciting, unpatronising story that is relevant to their interests and concerns, but who don't want to read a longer novel. With a length of only 6,000 words, and filled with drama, this story will appeal to all reluctant teen readers.
