AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Jayden Hayden, wordsmith, a.k.a rhyming boy, doesn't have a dad - just a mum obsessed with Jayden Finch, the footballer, and an embarrassing name that gets him teased. When a school father-son day is announced, Jayden's quest for answers becomes a puzzle he needs to solve, and quickly. Could Jayden Finch be more than just a footballer? With the help of his an-answer-to-every-question friend Saskia, he aims to track down his namesake and his father all in one go.' (Publisher's blurb)
