RESPECT. That's what Lewis wants from his classmates. Nicknamed USELESS LEWIS or LOO BRUSH, he's fed up with his stammer, fed up that he can't pluck up the nerve to join the drama club - and fed up that the only football he gets to play is pretend matches with his collection of bottle-tops at home.
Then Lewis' gangly mate Zulfi puts together a team for a five-a-side charity tournament. And he wants LEWIS to play! Can the bottle-top king burst out of his shell and show everyone the hero inside?
A fresh, deliciously humourous story from a downtrodden pipsqueak who knows deep down he's a genius!
