A novel about footy and friendship.
Ben and Noah play on opposing teams in a footy-obsessed town. They each dream of playing on the G – and this is their make or break season.
Tensions rise as sledging goes too far.
Will Noah lose his cool, and his chance, in the face of prejudice?
Will Ben reject racism and forge his own path?
