Chasing the Break by Michael Panckridge
Published by Ford Street Publishing
Chasing the break by Michael Panckridge is a gripping and exciting book.
Mitchell Grady has moved to a new school, Sandhurst. He soon finds out about the Legends Competition, a series of competitive sports that are played to find the Sandhurst Legend of Sports Champion. But on Mitchell’s first day he meets Travis Fisk, a competitive boy who will do anything to win.
I really enjoyed this book because of the sports (the Legends competition was awesome!), the action and the rivalry between Travis and Mitchell. I loved it so much I can’t find anything negative to say about it.
I would recommend this book for kids in Year 3 to 5 because it’s a great way to get them interested in sports and it is a fun read. It would also appeal to any gender as there are two competitions, one for girls and one for boys.
This is a fantastic book!
