Author(s): Dennis Hamley
In his first game for Greyport, Jack is mysteriously fouled- by an invisible player on his own team. Is Jack losing it? Or is the past coming back to haunt him? The Team with the Ghost Player is one of brand-new titles for the Shades 2.0 series, it is great for reluctant older readers, and is perfect for fans of ghost and football stories. The Shades 2.0 books offer fast-paced, shorter stories (just 64pp each) for older readers who may find longer books too daunting, but who still want the excitement of a great story told with pace and style. Shades 2.0 is ideal for reluctant readers aged 12+ with a reading age of 9 - 10.
