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?

Praise for Glenn Maxwell 2: Academy All-Stars

“Easily read, interesting even for a bystander but I imagine riveting for young players, the Glenn Maxwell books should prove wildly popular.”
