‘Brilliant, original, tense, funny, touching.’
A coming of age, family drama, action adventure novel for teens and adults alike – about the crashes of life – set against the colourful and cut-throat world of kart racing.
On the same day Ayrton Senna crashes his F1 car in the San Marino Grand Prix, 13 year old Lewis Murphy is left reeling from the shock news that his parents are getting divorced. When Lewis’ dad takes a job as a mini-cab driver to buy him a superfast racing kart, Lewis is catapulted into the colourful and cut-throat world of karting, where some families will stop at nothing, including violence, to win.
Caught between Bradley, the track bully, with an even more ruthless father, and Chris, a fiery girl with a tragic past, Lewis is guided by a mysterious mechanic and the fighting spirit of Ayrton Senna to find his own way to win on and off the track.
Shortlisted in the Artists’ and Writers’ novel writing competition, Rain Master is a coming of age, family drama and action adventure.
