Product Description

Nothing falls as far as a star…

Celebrated as a national hero, cherished by the media: South American soccer star Otello has it all. Until he is transferred to Rialto, a club in the racist South, where black players are not welcome. There, he falls in love with white celebrity singer Desmerelda, wedding her in a dream marriage of Beckham-esque proportions. But, incensed by Otello’s success, and the great love bestowed upon him, an unseen enemy vows to destroy him by any means – even murder. Meanwhile, three street children scrape a living in the slums, about to be caught up in a scandal that will visit a terrible revenge upon a star… Exploring themes of celebrity, race, jealousy and the media, this shocking, hard-hitting football story from Carnegie winner Mal Peet is an absolute cracker.

Winner of the Guardian Children’s Fiction Prize 2009.

“Totally electrifying. You don’t have to care about football … because he makes you care so much about his characters. Clever, funny, moving and superbly well written, it’s the work of a major author.” The Times

Exposure is a terrific book. It’s really exciting, meaty and ambitious and terrifically told and put together.” Patrick Ness, author of “The Knife of Never Letting Go”

“Classic nail-biting stuff… It has all the elements of a classic Shakesperian drama.” Teentoday.co.uk
