Wings - Flyboy

Paperback

From football to flight sequences and real-life drama to fantasy, the action-packed first book in Tom Palmer's Wings sequence has it all.

Jatinder seems to be living his dream – he's training for his team's youth squad, and his host parents Steve and Esther are really great. But something's holding Jatinder back from being a really great footballer – himself. Steve reckons it's OK to take risks – look at his own hero, Hardit Singh Malik. That night Jatinder wakes up in a seriously surprising situation – flying Hardit's WWI fighter plane into enemy airspace.
