Everyone knows that Homer loves Australian Rules football. But ever since his dad moved away and his mum was drafted in the women's league, something has changed. He's spending more time fixing clothes with his grandfather than scoring goals with his friends. When Homer's upgraded school shirt becomes the talk of the playground, he sees a business opportunity that could make him enough money to visit his dad. But the more stitches Homer makes, the more that everything else in his life begins to unravel. His friends don't understand him, his dad feels further away than ever, and even playing football doesn't feel like the escape it used to. Can Homer find a way to get back to how things used to be? And what does it mean if he can't?

From the award-winning author behind How to Make a Movie in 12 Days and How to Write the Soundtrack to Your Life comes a warm and funny celebration of following your dreams, wherever they lead.

Fiona Hardy knew she wanted to be a writer when she was in Grade One and got too many compliments for an underwhelming retelling of Alice in Wonderland. She loves books so much that she sells them, writes them, and has published reviews for them too. Her first book, How to Make a Movie in 12 Days, was a CBCA Notable book and shortlisted for the Speech Pathology Book of the Year Award. Her second book, How to Write the Soundtrack to Your Life, won the 2021 Children's Peace Literature Award. Fiona lives in Melbourne with a bunch of guitars, a keyboard, a clarinet, a violin, a harmonica and an accordion. Oh, and her partner, daughter, and cat. (The cat doesn't play any of the instruments. Yet.)
