Thought-provoking drama. Tim is terrible at French, so when his football coach Max offers to help with his homework he's thrilled. He knows it's wrong, but his marks are so much better that he pushes that out of his mind. When Max starts charging for his help, Tim gets entangled in a web of lies and doesn't know if he will ever escape. Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers.
