Specky Magee

by Felice Arena, Garry Lyon

Simon Magee is twelve and mad about Aussie Rules. He’s even got a nickname – ‘Specky’ – because he takes such spectacular marks. But his family hates footy… So why is there a baby photo of him dressed in footy gear? Determined to find out the truth, Specky uncovers more than he ever bargained for.
