Extra Time

by Morris Gleitzman

When 13-year-old Matt is discovered impressing the livestock in an Aussie country town with his remarkable soccer skills, he’s offered the chance of a lifetime – a try-out at one of Europe’s biggest and most glamorous soccer clubs. His younger sister Bridie goes with him as his manager and tells us their story – warts, goals and all.

The funny and moving story of a sister’s love for her brother, and how it survives everything fate throws at it, including the millions of pounds and mountains of pressure at the top of the world’s most popular sport.
