Summary
Tom Pearman has been tipped for football stardom all his young life. But after spending his teenage years training with a Premier League team, the bright future he imagined for himself disappears from one day to the next when he finds out his club has decided to let him go. Now he's nineteen, away from home, playing for a tiny club in a town he doesn't know. Shy and introverted - but desperate for recognition - Tom finds himself forced to navigate the dominant personalities and shifting relationships that rule the team. Along the way, he will also be forced to question whether he can reconcile his own desires with professional success
Summary
After his unceremonious release from a Premier League academy at nineteen, Tom feels his bright future slipping away. The only contract offer he receives is from a lower-level club. Away from home for the first time, Tom struggles on and off the field, anxious to avoid the cruel pranks and hazing rituals of his teammates. Then a taboo encounter upends what little stability he has, forcing Tom to reconcile his suppressed desires with his drive to succeed
