Shamini Flint: What’s The Worst Thing That Can Happen to You in a Soccer Match?

Session Info:

Marcus Atkinson is good at math and computer games but he’s absolutely terrible at sport.

Unfortunately, his Dad believes that Marcus has a gift for sport – just as long as they can find the right sport!

Thus begins Marcus’s adventures, recorded for our enjoyment in his Diaries, as he tries to become a Soccer Star, Cricket God and Rugby Champ (just to name a few!)

(The author would also like to deny that she has forced her children to play all these sports just to see what can go wrong so that she can write about it!).

The Diary of A … series captures the attention of every child who has ever been good at a sport or really bad at one and is especially appealing to reluctant readers.
