The Mighty Dynamo

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: MacMillan

Since 12-year-old Noah Murphy's mam died, his dad has had to move to Australia to get a job and his sister has had to put off university to work and look after him. In short, everything is horrible.

Noah is sure that getting signed to a big football club is the only way he will earn enough money to fix everything. So when he gets kicked off the school team, just before a big competition, he is distraught. Luckily, his best friend Stevie has a plan - they'll set up their own winning team! What they end up with is an extremely motley crew. Will the plan work?

This book has it all: laugh-out-loud moments, lump-in-throat moments, an exciting storyline, and great characters you genuinely care about. Readers will find themselves cheering on Noah and his team, right to the exciting finale. One of the best of 2016 so far.
