Simon 'Specky' Magee is twelve years old and mad about Australian Rules football. He's such a talented player he got his nickname 'Specky' for taking 'spec-tacular' marks. Not that anyone in his family would know - or care - about his ability.
When Specky finds a baby photo of himself dressed up in footy gear he is completely confused. Why would his parents have done this when they hate footy so much? Who dressed him in those clothes, and why won't his parents give him a straight answer when he asks them about it?
Determined to find out the truth, Specky embarks on a quest that uncovers more than he ever bargained for
a good book to read for 11 years old kids
i really loved this book. i really loved this book because it's not just about football it's about speckies family aswell and how theey have no interest in sport like he does. This book also shows how important support from your family mean to people. It also shows the courage specky has in himself.
