The Legend series. Ford St Publishing, 2017. ISBN 9781925272642
The Legend of sport competition has started for another year and students score points for skill based sessions, their knowledge of the sport and their game skills. The winner of the Legend of football and netball need to achieve the highest score in all three of these areas to be awarded the Legend of the sport. Will Mitch be able to win another title or will the school bully manage to win?
A group of friends learn the importance of team work and just because you don't like someone doesn't mean you can't work with them to achieve a common goal.
This is an entertaining story about the ups and downs of the sporting world from a school yard point of view. There is a twist in the book that you will have to read to find out more; what is the mystery in the library?
The quiz at the end of the book is a great way to show your friends how much you know about football and or netball, and test them to see how much they know.
An easy to read book for any sport lover.
