What it says on the back of the book
"If you dream it must be for real..."
Baljit's mates knew what was what. If you were good at football, really good, you could go places. But all his old man ever talked about was duty to the family and paying bills. Baljit couldn't just go on working in his old man's chippie. He wanted out!
"A glorious book"
