Out of His League by Pat Flynn

Pat Flynn delivers another winner with his latest book, Out of His League.  Ozzie, a talented ‘football’ player from a small town in Australia, participates in an exchange program and finds himself in Hope, Texas.  He is an instant hit with the girls.  It’s hard to compete with good looks, and alluring accent and great skills on the soccer field.  Ozzie finds himself in the midst of the American high school experience as a member of the football team.  The story could be a typical story of the new kid on the block taking all the glory and in the process making male enemies and female friends.  However, Flynn doesn’t take that road and what the reader ends up with is a complex story with well developed characters and plenty of good old American high school football.  A very good read and well worth the time.
