Description

Andy is a troubled teenager. Fighting is the only thing he's good at, it gives him his reputation, and he does a lot of it - so much that he's going to be expelled and dumped if he can't change his ways. The Head suggests a boxing club, but Andy reckons boxing is for wusses ...until he's knocked out in his first match by a kid half his size. Now Andy faces losing his reputation at school - and that's about all he has left. Will boxing be Andy's doom, or his salvation? Highly readable, exciting books that take the struggle out of reading, Wired Up encourages and supports reading practice by providing gripping, age-appropriate stories for struggling and reluctant readers, or those with English as an additional language, aged 11+, at a manageable length (80 pages) and reading level (9+). Produced in association with reading experts at CatchUp, a charity which aims to address underachievement caused by literacy and numeracy difficulties.
