Publisher Description

Winner of the 2009 Guardian Children's Fiction Prize

Carnegie Medalist Mal Peet takes a searing look at the world of soccer and pop-celebrity culture—and the lives of three street kids caught in its glare.

When a black South American soccer star signs on to a team in the country's racist south, headlines blare. And when he falls for the sensual Desmerelda, a stunning white pop singer and daughter of a wealthy politician, their sudden and controversial marriage propels the pair to center stage, where they burn in the media spotlight. But celebrity attracts enemies; some very close to home. And its dazzle reaches into the city's hidden corners, exposing a life of grit and desperation the glitterati could never imagine. When a girl is found murdered, reporter Paul Faustino is caught between worlds as he witnesses the power of the media in making—and breaking—lives. Inspired by Shakespeare's Othello, this modern tragedy of desire and betrayal, incisively and compassionately told, is a truly enthralling work of crossover fiction.

    " Some of this story follows Othello so closely (such as the names) that the ending threw me off. However, I liked the fact I didn't predict the ending. I'll stop with that so I don't spoil the ending for others. "

    " Not a bad book but I'll take the original (Shakespear's Othello) over this any day. I like the idea of a retake on such a well known story but this was lacking in character development. "

    " There's no doubt that Mal Peet is a terrific writer, but there's something disjointed, slightly wrong about the plot and setting of these Paul Faustino books. Can't quite put my finger on it, a great read, but not an entirely pleasant or satisfying one. "

    " This was a disappointment. The auther did such a great job with "Keeper", but I gave up on this one about half way through and quickly scanned the last of the book. The story was improbabale and not well written. "
