Overview

Marcus Wright - the boy all the girls swoon over - is a future tennis star. He has a solid forehand, a strong backhand, but his biggest asset is his mind. It can picture great shots like a movie screen and will him to victory, even when he's losing.

But when Marcus learns he has to win the next state title or lose someone he loves, his mind is tested like never before. He has to turn to a girl he has a crush on, Kayla, and a tuckshop expert named Matthew for help. And they don't know a thing about tennis.

Will he win, or will he lose?

From the author of the award-winning book The Tuckshop Kid comes the companion adventure about tennis, tuckshop and tricks of the mind. Also in this series: The Tuckshop Kid; The Toilet Kid.

Pat Flynn grew up running around an old dairy farm in Queensland before moving to the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra on a tennis scholarship. After playing and coaching on the professional circuit he became a teacher, where his observations of young people – their interests and stories – led to him writing a series about a teenage skateboarder called Alex Jackson. Pat likes to start the day with a surf and end it walking along the beach with his wife and son. He also enjoys the occasional game of tennis. Pat now writes full time and lives on the Sunshine Coast.
