About The Book

THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME!
It's the start of a terrific new season for Melchester Rovers. They are now a Championship club with a new kit, new owners and a fabulous new stadium. With Sowerby now fully integrated into the club, Rocky and Roy Race couldn't be happier. But a personal tragedy and an appalling incident during a Melchester Rovers match in Europe, will push the footballing siblings to the limit.

Praise for the Roy of the Rovers series:

EPIC! - Match of the Day Magazine

I love the way that they are about so much more than football: they are about heart, values and family. Both graphic novel and fiction titles are compelling, engaging and a lot of fun. Lace up and get reading. - Jim Sells, Programme manager for Sport & Literacy, National Literacy Trust.

Read with my 7 year old who is football mad, really enjoyed it and left us wanting to read the next one in the series! - GoodReads Review

EPIC! - Match of the Day Magazine

Football-lovers will love the description of on-pitch action which is pacy yet satisfyingly detailed. This is a book that I am looking forward to putting on the shelves at school - I know already that it will be a popular title amongst our football-loving children (not just boys!). - That Boy Can Teach

This book has so much to offer. It has everything that a football fan needs... match day action, local club rivalry, modern football politics, trials, crunching tackles, tricks, misses and goals. But this is much more than a book about the beautiful game, because it also has everything that today's children need as they grow up. It is jam-packed with positive role models, girls involvement in Women's Football, respect, mental well-being, good work ethic, education and aspiration. Tom Palmer expertly weaves all of this together with friendship, family and a great little plot. - Books for Topics

The book packs a lot of punch in its short and simple to read pages. It captures the feel of playing and having a passion for football at an early age very well. More than that it sets out the stall of the new Roy Race, his family background, his friends and enemies, where he lives and his work ethic. There are a number of positive messages for all children and adults in this book and how dedicated you have to be to pursue your dreams. - ComicScene
