In his first game for Greyport, Jacky Warren is mysteriously fouled - by an invisible player. Jacky says the player was wearing a red strip - Greyport's - but that makes no sense. Is Jacky losing his mind? Or is somebody's past coming back to haunt him?

Part of the new Fresh Shades series, this book is exciting and fast-paced, keeping within the style of the Shades 2.0 series. It is perfect for reluctant teens who still want an exciting, unpatronising read 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.


"We all enjoyed the book. There were some very creepy moments! Jealousy and hate were the two big emotions in the story and that they can hurt people. We liked that the hero of the story was a girl and we think both boys and girls would like this book. It was an easy and quick book to read."
