'Football matches can change in a matter of seconds. So too can lives.'
Luke stands at the stern of the Stena Seacat, and stares down at Dun Laoghaire harbour below. His whole universe is about to alter. Ella is behind him, trials for Everton are ahead of him. He has no idea where the journey will take him but he can't wait to begin.This tremendous follow up to a powerful debut novel, The Stretford Enders, charts Luke's first love, football as he sets out to play for Everton and leave behind his home, and perhaps his heart.
Acutely observed. World Cup aficionados will warm to Luke Farrell, as soccer crazy as he was in The Stretford Enders, but now even more hormonally charged and self-absorbed. . . . A cool, gripping narrative
Life, love and football make their interweaving demands on 15-year-old Luke
