Summary

AB hopped over the boundary rope and onto the field, grinning at the sight and sound of a packed Wanderers Stadium. He swung his bat from side to side and listened to the crowd roaring his name. So begins the wonderfully entertaining story of the rise to fame of one of South Africas favourite sporting stars. Written specifically for youngsters aged 10 14, it takes the reader close to all the action and the ups and downs. AB was already building a name as a great schoolboy tennis and rugby player, but when he decided to focus on cricket, the word spread quickly about a talent that could not be contained. With two brothers a lot older than him, AB learned early how to play hard and never give up. In this inspiring story we watch as AB progresses through high school, then varsity, and learns how to play against the best. In his first Test series, AB struggles and wonders if hes good enough to make it at this level. However, the outcome is an inspiration to sports fans and readers who love a good story.
