Description

Jake dreams of becoming a golf pro, but can't afford a full set of clubs or a membership to the Royal Pinecrest Golf Club. The only way he can play the course is to sneak on to it. When Jake gets the opportunity to be taught by a pro, he has to learn to trust in himself, and stand up to the rich kids who belittle him, in order to take his game to the next level.

Editorial Reviews

"...the book will appeal to sport loving young male readers, particularly those who find themselves spellbound by the Tiger Woods phenomenon. Furthermore, despite the general simplicity of the plot, Howling does tackle the difficult issue of school bullying."
