We continue with the blog tour for the fabulous Baller Boys book today – with a giveaway of the book!
Shay and Frankie are best friends and football crazy. They eat, sleep and breathe football all day (even when they’re at school!).
They dream about playing football, love a kick-about in the park, watch all the big games on TV… all that’s missing in their lives is the chance to play for a real football team. All Cultures United is the best club around for miles and all the footie fans want to play for them… including Shay and Frankie. Are they good enough to impress Coach Reece at the AC United trials?
Can their friendship survive the competitiveness of football? Will they ultimately fulfil their goal to become Baller Boys?
Venessa Taylor brings two decades of experience as an inner-city primary school teacher and assistant headteacher, to the creation of the Baller Boys series. The first book is due for release by Hashtag Press on May 28 th 2020 as a paperback and ebook.
Aimed at encouraging young boys to enjoy reading, the football-themed stories are written with young readers in mind. Born and raised in London, Venessa continues her legacy as a literacy lead, through her stories. One of her proudest achievements was raising the standards of reading and literary engagement and attainment across the school with a focus of engaging boys and reluctant readers. Venessa used this valuable time to research and identify what students would respond most to in terms of content, characters and setting. Venessa soon realised that what the boys wanted to read about was not readily available, so took the challenge upon herself to inspire and encourage more young people – boys in particular – to read.
