Second instalment of Tom Palmer's action-packed rugby trilogy set against the backdrop of war.
The Borderlands boarding school rugby team have made it into the European Rugby Championship Tournament. They're enjoying their time in France, but Rory and the rest of the team can't help thinking about each of their parents, serving overseas in the growing conflict in the Central Asian Republic. Can the boys focus on the game enough to win the final and make it to the International Tournament?
Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 8+
Originally from Leeds, and previously shortlisted for the Blue Peter Prize, Tom is best known for his Football Academy and Foul Play series. He credits articles about football with getting him into reading and libraries across the country attest to the fact that he is one of the main motivating factors for boys getting into books today.
