Archie is 15 and a really good kart driver - good enough to maybe win the chance to race in Europe. But things are not always that easy - there's the competition, some who have seemingly limitless funds to buy all the right gear and mechanical help, as well as having to deal with his dad's new girlfriend and her son. She hates karting. Not to mention schoolwork, keeping fit, getting sponsorship, staying in touch with his own girlfriend . . . .
A highly recommended read for Intermediate students - boys and girls. Plenty of action, well constructed believable characters and a really Kiwi story.
