'Mitchell Grady is the new kid at school - a school that's crazy about sport. He quickly learns about the Legend of Sport competition - an all year sporting challenge featuring eight exciting sports. He's in! But so too is Travis Fisk, the mean guy who was last year's Legend, and who will stop at nothing to win again this year. Chasing the Break has the kids from Sandhurst Primary heading to their annual coastal camp to battle the sand, waves and each other to see who comes out on top in the battle of the surf. In Against the Spin, the sport is cricket and Mitchell quickly learns who his true friends are - and that good doesn't always prevail over evil. As predicted, Travis will do what it takes to be crowned the Legend of Sport. ' (Publication summary)

It’s not all fair play when the stakes are high.' (Publication summary)
