Kwame Alexander

A novel written in verse, flowing freely and smoothly, reading perfectly naturally. Poet and author Kwame Alexander skilfully tells the story of Nick Hall, a clever, articulate, football loving youngster. Everything is rosy for Nick, until his mum leaves, and then one by one other things start to go wrong in his life. He has to learn to live through some painful experiences, including parental divorce, bullying at school, unreasonable expectations from his dad, and unrequited love.
