Imagine being filmed using your football skills to avoid being trampled by a herd of stampeding cattle. That's what happens to 14 year old Matt and it changes his life forever.
Suddenly he is leaving the small town in Australia where he has grown up and is flying with his sister/self-appointed manager to spend two weeks living the life of an English Premier League football star.
Even non-football fans will enjoy this heart-warming story from Morris Gleitzman. Matt is given the opportunity to fulfil his dreams but he manages to do this without giving up on what he believes in.
