Author: Johnathan Thurston with James Phelps
Publisher: HarperCollins Children’s Books
About the book: This is the life story of the rugby league Johnathan Thurston. It follows his younger years and upbringing through to where he is today.
The story is written in first-person and includes his ups and downs, and the blood, sweat and tears that made him such a successful footballer.
What I thought: I thought this was a great book, since I love rugby league so much. I loved how we were able to see where it all started and how JT was brought up.
At times he felt as though he would never make it, when he wasn’t picked for any rep sides, but with his hard work and dedication he was able to make it to where he is today.
I would recommend this book for readers 10+ and to anyone who would like to learn more about rugby league and how big players make it.
