About the book

Book cover - Jarvis 24 by David Metzenthen

So far, Marc E. Jarvis has lost a white football boot, a school tie and a best friend. But there's more in store for him when he completes Work Experience at a local car yard – where his world is truly rocked, shocked and shaken. Then Marc meets Electra. And nothing will ever be the same again . . .

A story of true friends, crazed coaches, shooting stars, and loves lost and found.
