Freaks United by John Hickman

freaksunitedFreaks United is a soccer novel about the boys (and girls) apparently not cut out to make the team.

I was probably predisposed to this novel because one of the characters comes to the soccer pitch straight from a Games Workshop, but both my son and I enjoyed it from start to finish.

Freaks United is a novel both about being yourself and working together to accomplish something great. Who doesn’t like a tale of arrogant jocks losing face to a group of kids who don’t quite fit in? Better still, the novel doesn’t quite end how you expect it to. Gently humorous and written for younger readers, I recommended it for young geeks, soccer or otherwise, everywhere.
