Dan has teamed up with David Fickling Books to release his first young adult novel; and it is entitled Unstoppable.
It follows twins Kaine and Roxy, both hoping to find successful paths in different sport careers. He is being scouted by a top Premier League club; she is heading for tennis glory at Wimbledon. But there are obstacles; life can get in the way.
Dan said: “As soon as I sat down with the inspirational team at DFB, it immediately felt right. They completely understood not only the story, but also who it’s for.”
“Unstoppable is about sport, family and peer pressure – the forces and obstacles that many kids are facing everyday as they grow up, trying to achieve their dreams. My hope is that the fans of the Jamie Johnson series will really enjoy it as the next step in their reading journey.”
The book isn’t just aimed at sports fans, but also to a wider audience as the twins attempt to overcome seemingly insurmountable complications and realise their aspirations- despite the shifting goalposts.
The publishing director at DFB, Bella Pearson, commented: “We are so thrilled to be publishing Dan’s new novel. Unstoppable is thrilling, gritty and hugely accessible, and Dan’s passion to get young people reading shines through the narrative.”
Come February don’t miss the brand new book, full of sport, drama, twists and turns!
