Sami and Ali dream of playing for the school football team. They practise in the park every day and work hard on their skills.
But acing the trials is the last of the boys’ worries when they’re made to feel they don’t belong on the team because of the colour of their skin. Ali just wants to tackle the ball on the pitch. Now he’s being forced to tackle the racism in his team too.
But how can he, when he’s told it’s ‘just banter’?
From the award-winning author of Boy, Everywhere, a powerful story of friendship and booting out racism.
