Synopsis

A junior fiction series about an up-and-coming cricketer who is mentored by Australian cricket star Glenn Maxwell.

Talented young batsman Will Albright has earned himself a place at the brand-new T20 Youth Academy. But, in order to prove himself worthy of playing for Victoria, he will first have to face everything the academy can throw at him - including more bone-rattling bouncers from his archenemy, Darren 'Killer' McKinnon. To make things even more challenging, Will must compete with his best mate, Shavil, for the highly sought-after opening batsman spot.

Can Australian T20 all-rounder Glenn Maxwell help Will adjust his game and earn a spot on the state team without losing his friend or his head?

"PATRICK LOUGHLIN is a high school English teacher and writer who lives in Sydney with his wife, two daughters and hyperactive spoodle. As a kid, Patrick loved sport, he just wasn't very good at it. His biggest achievement on the cricket field came at 39 years of age when he hit three 'sixes' in a row during a family game of beach cricket. His ten-year-old nephew was bowling at the time. The Glenn Maxwell series is Patrick's second children's book series about sport. GLENN MAXWELL is one of Australia's most promising young cricket players. At just 25 years of age he is a fixture of the Australian One Day International and T20 sides and has featured in the Australian Test team. Glenn is a big-hitting batsman who can also bowl a handy off-spin. After the 2014 Indian Premier League Season, Glenn was labelled the leading Twenty20 cricket player in the world."
