All Tom has ever wanted to do is join the army, but the odds seem stacked against him. Schoolwork doesn't come easily for Tom, and without a lot of work, he'll never pass his exams. Tom is determined and with enough determination we can overcome huge obstacles. It's a good thing too - because Tom is going to have major obstacles thrown in his path. Any child with younger siblings will be able to laugh at the disasters that befall Tom as he tries to prepare for the most important day of his life - the exam that will determine his future. If he passes he can join the army. If not - his dreams are over.

When the day of the big exam finally comes, Tom is left without a school a uniform and refused admission to the test. Most boys would go home in tears, but Tom's best mate comes to the rescue with an ingenious plan. With a bit of begging and borrowing Tom soon has a uniform to wear, and without a minute to spare he rushes in for the exam. There is only one problem. The only uniform Tom's friend can find is a girl's uniform. Will Tom be brave enough to sit his exams in a skirt?

This is an incredible story of overcoming hardship and courage. It also happens to be dyslexia friendly.It takes real courage for a child to struggle so much to make something of themselves. It takes courage not togive up when you have to struggle so much, not for the best grades, but just to pass. The fact that Tom does all of this makes him a hero in my opinion, but even then he has more hurdles to cross. To walk into a school classroom in front of your mates in a skirt is an act of bravery that most boys can truly appreciate - and it also tells children to go for their dreams, no matter what anyone else thinks. I can not recommend this book highly enough.
