Football is Blake's life - but it doesn't pay the rent. And if his mum can't do that, they're out on the street. So when a stranger makes him an offer, Blake finds it hard to resist. All he has to do is miss some goals and he'll earn enough cash to keep them going a little while longer. But what if Blake does fix the match? He could end up risking a lot more than just losing a game. Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 12+
