Description - The Trophy Kid by Pat Flynn

A companion novel to The Tuckshop Kid and The Toilet Kid, The Trophy Kid will have you laughing and crying, sometimes at the same time. It's about dealing with the biggest challenge of all - the pressures we put on ourselves.
There's someone in trouble at Matt's school and for once it is not him!
Marcus Wright - the school tennis star and Matt's best friend - is obsessed with tennis. He has a reliable forehand, a strong backhand, but his biggest asset is his mind. It can picture great shots like a movie screen and will him to victory, even when he's losing.
But when Marcus learns he has to win the next state title or lose someone he loves, his mind is tested like never before. He becomes his own biggest rival. Marcus has to look to a tuckshop expert named Matt and his friend Kayla for help. And they don't know a thing about tennis. Will he win, or will he lose?
Nothing else matters when you are obsessed about winning.

Author Biography - Pat Flynn

Pat Flynn grew up running around an old dairy farm in Queensland, before moving to Canberra to attend the Australian Institute of Sport on a tennis scholarship. After playing and coaching on the professional circuit he became a teacher, where his observations of young people - their interests and stories - led to him writing about them. Pat Flynn now writes books for a living, in a house near the beach on the Sunshine Coast. He likes to start the day off with a surf and end it walking along the beach with his wife. His books include Get Rich Quick, Don't Kiss Girls, How to Get Dumped, Aussie Chomp- The Mal Rider, The Best Ballgirl and Tom in the Stuff Happens series.
