From spectator to superstar, that's The Champ! A brilliant new series from number one bestselling author Anh Do.

Summer loves sport. She would love to charge down the field towards an open goal, or soar through the air over the basket. She would love to be part of a team. But instead she always seems to be the last one picked.

That is until the day her life changes forever… Until the day Summer becomes THE CHAMP.

But even the Champ will have her work cut out for her if she is going to keep her brother, her best friend and her whole town safe from the dastardly plans of the wicked Librarian…

Summer’s Mum and Dad died in an accident last year. She now lives with just her older brother Carl, who is a sports star. She wishes that she had some of his ability as she is a sports nut.

When a freak purple goop storm hits their house, Carl winds up in a wheelchair and suddenly Summer has amazing powers.

The question is, how can Summer use them for good and not be taken in by the sinister People’s  Service?

With a female superhero, an evil librarian, and the People’s Service, together with a fantastic adventure, what’s not to like about this great new series!

Full of themes of courage, adventure, friendship, sports, and of course super powers, it is a wonderful read for those aged 7 - 11 years.
