Star Review


Lucky Break by Patrick Loughlin. Review written by Rohan.

I think that this is a *****(5) star book because not only is it about cricket (and I love cricket!), but it also has a great story with drama, action and one great cricketer, who is the real all rounder, Glenn Maxwell. The main character, Will Albright, is a batting whiz but is not sure whether he will survive Darren McKinnon's super-fast, deadly bouncers and beamers. But with Will's hero Glenn Maxwell around, will he survive the bouncers? I ABSOLUTELY, DEFINITELY love this book!!!! (More kids' reviews!)
