15-year-old Jay Stone is good-looking, athletic and popular.
There´s just one problem: Jay´s legs are short, so short that the
other kids call him "Stubs". When Jay gets a surprise place on the
school´s American football team, some of the older members decide
to tech him a lesson. Can Jay ignore their comments about his legs
and keep his place on the team? Beautifully illustrated short books
that even the most reluctant student will easily read in one
sitting. A wide variety of Before and After Reading activities,
with interesting and fun fact files exploring the issues raised,
contemporary culture, internet projects and extra listening
activities. The manageable length means that even less-able
students get a real sense of progress and achievement as they
willingly finish the book. Audio CD recorded in American English.
