“Sometimes I tell myself that maybe I’m in the middle of a bad dream… I’m locked inside my head and I can’t get out.”
Football-mad Robbie is lying in a coma after being hit by a car. Now he’s locked in his body, unable to move or speak. As Robbie lies on the hospital bed, thoughts drift through his mind: thoughts of his life outside, his family and friends. But nobody seems able to reach in and get Robbie to wake up. Even a visit from Zola, his favourite footballer, doesn’t help. Then one day, against hospital rules, Dad brings Robbie’s dog Lucky to his bed. Can Lucky do the impossible, and awaken him? A powerful story of hope and courage from best-loved author Michael Morpurgo.
