Rocky of the Rovers BOOK GIVEAWAY!

You (or your mum or dad) may have heard of ‘Roy of the Rovers’ or read some of the books in the rebooted series. Well, it’s about to get a whole lot more exciting as the final title in the second season is also the first book in Roy’s 65 year history to be told from the perspective of a female footballer: Rocky Race!

Rocky Race is many things, but to most people she’s just Roy Race’s little sister, and she’s sick of everyone knowing her through Roy, she’s had enough of school, and she’s even started having panic attacks. As well as being a brilliant footballer (some say better than Roy), she’s also fiercely loyal and now it’s up to Rocky to find her own way as a young girl and a footballer and she’s going to need all her grit and determination to do it. This book is just the beginning of her adventures…
