The Big Bash League book series is back better and BIGGER than ever!

The Big Bash League book series is back better and BIGGER than ever!

Billy loves to bowl – fast! He’s also a massive Melbourne Stars fan and when his friend Wen-Lee lets him know about a cricket academy camp, run by none other than the Stars, Billy is desperate to go! So is Wen-Lee, even if she does barrack for the Brisbane Heat.

Trouble is, the applications are about to close and Billy needs to find a way to raise money for the entry fee. Perhaps a speed-bowling competition is in order!


It is fantastic to see that there are both male and female strong lead characters in the book. It is a story of determination, friendship and quick thinking.

Kathryn Schumacher, ReadPlus

Definitely a series for the cricket lovers and one to recommend to parents to keep reading going over the long summer holidays!

Barbara Braxton, The Bottom Shelf

This story will inspire young cricketers, but what I love is how it encourages qualities of loyalty, selflessness and determination. It is wonderful to have quality sports genre books to offer our middle school readers.

Sharon Seymour, CBCA Reading Time
