The Silent Striker

by Pete Kalu
£6.99   paperback  HopeRoad Publishing Ltd (2015)

The Silent Striker by Pete Kalu Book two in the STRIKER series has arrived
 
Marcus is a 14 year old footballing genius who keeps getting into deep trouble at his school. He is the best player by far at Ducie High, in a tough, ethnically diverse, inner city area. The team gets tantalisingly close to Schools League and Cup glory. His Nigerian father is a wannabe soul singer with a day job as a postman, and his English mum cold-calls double glazing. They are at a loss what to do with wayward, Marcus.
 
Dealing with deafness, shifting friends, crazy parents and a ‘special measures’ school, he will have to gather all the strength he can find – in others as well as within himself.
