Jamie's heart was beating all through his body. Everything depended on him. He HAD to score... Soccer prodigy Jamie Johnson is desperate to become Highwood School's star football player (and, in his dreams, Hawkstone United's, too). But after he wrecks his chances at the trials, the pressure's on to prove himself. Can he shoot from his school team all the way to the top? This riveting football series comes from an FA insider with an unrivalled knowledge of how Premiership football works. Capturing the sweat, passion and glory of the beautiful game, it will keep every footie fan glued to the page.

My 9 year old son who is a bit of a reluctant reader loved this book and is begging me to pre-order the sequel for him and also to do a positive review on Amazon. In his own words he loved it because "I love the book as it had so much realistic information about football. It was so enjoyable that it is difficult to explain just how great it was! Jamie is a great character as he starts of as not such such a great footballer in the 'b' team but gradually he practices in the park with one of the best footballers in the school - Miller. Then he gets moved to the 'a' team. This shows me that with practice you can be where you want to be and have success and not be a failure. I would rate it with a hundred stars if I could. Its the best! Please Dan freedman hurry up with the next book "Shoot to Win".

The Kick Off is a page turner - adults and kids alike will get drawn in.

Will life's boring bits stop Jamie achieving his objective of being a pro footballer? No chance - No more chance than me an oldie adult being stopped by boring old work and gardening from being a pro-footballer myself! You'd better believe it.

It's realistic and believable both to the neighbours 12 year-old kid who read it in three days and to me an oldie who read in two.

Oh it's educational as well. I can't wait for the next lessons!
