A NEW ERA KICKS OFF! Scouted is the first book in the football-tastic Roy of the Rovers fiction series. Part of the first season, this exciting series is written by award-winning author Tom Palmer.
Roy Race is a totally normal 16-year-old. He just happens to be the best striker in Melchester, too. Roy's always dreamed of becoming a professional footballer and playing for Melchester Rovers, the team he's supported his entire life, but he never thought he'd get a chance - until now. Rovers are on the lookout for new players, but is Roy good enough to catch the scout's eye? He'll have to be fitter, stronger and more determined than ever - but if he's going to become Roy of the Rovers, now's the time!

Praise for the Roy of the Rovers series:
EPIC! - Match of the Day Magazine
I love the way that they are about so much more than football: they are about heart, values and family. Both graphic novel and fiction titles are compelling, engaging and a lot of fun. Lace up and get reading. - Jim Sells, Programme manager for Sport & Literacy, National Literacy Trust.
