Charlie Fry and the Penalty Shootout Charlie Fry is the Football Boy Wonder.

Everyone wants to beat him and his friends. The 12-year-old, who cannot run far because of cystic fibrosis, is a marked man but, thanks to the magic target floating around inside his mind, he never misses.

So when Charlie turns up for a five-a-side competition, the opposition teams lick their lips with glee: it's their big chance to finally beat the Football Boy Wonder.

With only half his team turning up and older opposition players unwilling to give up their title without a fight, will Charlie be able to lift the prize trophy?

Charlie Fry and the Penalty Shootout is the first part of the Football Boy Wonder Chronicles,  a series of novellas set in the world of the bestselling Charlie Fry Series.

Praise for the Charlie Fry Series:

"The Football Boy Wonder is an outstanding book for football fans by Martin Smith."

"Just the ticket for children who love the loyalty/bullying theme, bravery, football, struggling against the odds and a good dose of mystery and achievement."

Martin Smith wrote the Charlie Fry Series to raise awareness about cystic fibrosis, a condition he has himself.
