Tess's older brother Ben is great at football, and he's really popular - but he hates the gypsy kids and Tess's friendships with them. Then Ben gets caught up in a criminal underworld and he needs help - wherever it comes from.

Tess and her brother Ben's stories ties in with that of Mike and Lizzie, who belong to a group of Romany gypsies that have come to live in a newly created council site on the edge of a village.
Written by popular author Rosemary Hayes, The Travellers is aimed at readers between 9 and 13 with an average reading age of 10 years. Each book is based on research undertaken by Rosemary. She skillfully weaves together the stories of the four young teenagers, from both traveller and non-traveller backgrounds, to explore different attitudes towards Romany gypsies. These are, first and foremost, great stories which both boys and girls will enjoy.
