Morgan's story echoes The Football Boy Wonder

It seems that the Football Boy Wonder, Charlie Fry, is not alone! Charlie Fry is an 11-year-old boy that is obsessed with football. He plays it around the clock and he dreams of scoring the winning goal in an FA Cup final. However, Charlie has a problem: he has CF and his poor lung capacity does not allow him to run very far. Then, one day, an unusual accident presents Charlie with a unique gift - being able to score a goal every time, without missing.

The Charlie Fry Book Series is intended to be read by children ages 7 through 13. It consists of 5 books that look at themes such as friendship, bullying, loyalty, believing in oneself, and the great world of football.
