The Trophy Kid

Author(s): Pat Flynn

Junior Fiction

There's someone in trouble at Matt's school and for once it is not him! Marcus Wright - the school tennis star and Matt's best friend - is obsessed with tennis. He has a reliable forehand, a strong backhand, but his biggest asset is his mind. It can picture great shots like a movie screen and will him to victory, even when he's losing. But when Marcus learns he has to win the next state title or lose someone he loves, his mind is tested like never before. He becomes his own biggest rival. Marcus has to look to a tuckshop expert named Matt and his friend Kayla for help. And they don't know a thing about tennis. Will he win, or will he lose? Nothing else matters when you are obsessed about winning.
