Speed Freak – Fleur Beale



Fleur Beale’s latest will be a popular choice for younger teen readers.

Main character, Archie, is a kart racer. A good one. But to be great he needs    sponsorship and more money, a lot more money. As a third generation racer, he      has the support of both his father and grandfather , but that is not enough. There  is intense competition among the karting community for the #1 spot on both the start grid and the sponsorship list.

Added complications to Archie’s life are his father’s new partner who has an absolute hatred for racing and her son who just wants to get on in the kart!

Great action sequences and typical Beale prose will make this a popular choice.
