It was so hard to decide whether to accept this incredible offer. Many of my former team mates were saying I shouldn’t play in Spain, but my heart was telling me that it was probably going to be a once in a lifetime chance. ‘ Complete transfer’ – it was as if it was beckoning me over, telling me to press it.

I had done it. In a couple of weeks, I would play under the baking sun of Madrid, not the heavy rain of Derby. Hopefully, my family would choose to live near the Santiago Bernabeu : this meant I could see them much more often. Was I going to regret this offer?

” Escuche que quieres unirte a nuestro equipo,” said one of the board members, making me confused with his Spanish. Luckily, my agent Diego Sanchez had translated it into English – even though he wasn’t very good at it. ” He means, I hear you want to join our team.” After a while, my agent talked to the board member about completing the final process and my accomodation. Then I saw him. Ronaldo. Cristiano Ronaldo. My idol. The greatest player ever. I was going to play with the best footballers in the world.

But would I play up to their standard?

Rooftoppers is about a girl called Sophie, who is trying to find her mother after she thinks she had drowned in the Queen Mary – a ship. But she is determined to find her if she is still alive. Read the amazing book to find out more…

What I enjoyed : When all the rooftoppers defeat the gariers.
What I didn’t enjoy : Nothing ????
Recommendation : I will definitely recommend this book to 9+.

I hope there is a sequel to this book.

Intense Hide and Seek

”Ready or not, here I come,” shouted Kevin, determined to find Sally. The adventurous, daring pair had been in the cave for hours – more like, days. Unsuprisingly, they would come to the cave twice a week, playing different things : tag, stuck in the mud, bulldog and more. Today was not the same. Extreme hide and seek. No torches, no help except for their father’s map. It contained all the best hiding spots in the cave.

” Found you! ” stated Kevin, proud of find his sister in such limited conditions. He remembered finding Sally in Extreme hide and seek in a run – down building. But this was more intense. The sudden crunch of gravel was unexpected, as Kevin wondered whether it was Sally who had ran across the gravel. He quickly glanced back at where she was. She was gone. Questions shot at him like bullets – where was Sally? was she safe? who had created the crunch of gravel?

Kevin ducked behind the nearest rock – he could hear deafening screeches that pierced through the eerie gloom. As time gradually went past, he could feel the menacing intent of evil devouring him : it was as if daggers had cut through him, cut through his soul, cut through his mind. He was alone. No one was there to help. Kevin had to get out before it was too late. The trees outside thrashed around like crazed, out of control zombies. Sweat meandered down his cheek, as a tingling sensation went down his spine. The hairs on his arm stood up, retreating back, a weak army. 

Then, it all changed.

Half an hour later, Kevin was no longer mortal. His chest was full of strength and power, with abdominal muscles protruding out. His palms were hairy, with the claws at the end of them. His red eye illuminously flickered. Kevin could no longer change this.

River Boy is beautifully written because it is about the life of a teenage girl. Jess loves swimming and she is good at it. Her grandad paints many pictures and he is working on a new one called the River Boy. Jess is confused because there is no boy in the picture. But then she finally meets the River Boy.

Which part I enjoyed : When Jess helps her ill grandad to finish the painting.
Recommendation : I recommend this book to 9+.

On Saturday, the Champions League final will be played at the Millennium stadium between Juventus and Real Madrid – two of Europe’s biggest teams. Many people will be watching from their homes or the stadium because it is such a well – known sporting competition. I want Juventus to win the final, but I predict that Real Madrid will win 3 – 2 [ AET ] . Last year, Real Madrid had beaten Atletico Madrid [ huge rivals ] in the penalty shoot – out.
