A tale of an unexpected friendship, an unlikely hero and an improbable journey, Alex s story treads the fine line between light and dark, laughter and tears. And it might just strike you as one of the funniest, most heartbreaking novels you ve ever read. Alex Woods knows that he hasn t had the most conventional start in life. He knows that growing up with a clairvoyant single mother won t endear him to the local bullies. He also knows that even the most improbable events can happen - he s got the scars to prove it. What he doesn t know yet is that when he meets ill-tempered, reclusive widower Mr Peterson, he ll make an unlikely friend. Someone who tells him that you only get one shot at life. That you have to make the best possible choices. So when, aged seventeen, Alex is stopped at Dover customs with 113 grams of marijuana, an urn full of ashes on the passenger seat, and an entire nation in uproar, he s fairly sure he s done the right thing ...
The Weekly Times 2018 FIFA World Cup Souvenir Wall Chart - featuring the gallant Socceroos who bowed out early in far-from-disgraced circumstances. The imagery incorporated in TWT\'s wall chart features a handful of key figures from our national team, along with the words: \"Taking on the World\".
It's a reminder that it's exactly what the Socceroos were doing - and of all our national teams across all our sports, it's this team that really does have to compete with a global lineup of competitors, including the top shelf of football powers and trailblazers from Europe, The Americas and its regional rivals in the Asian region.
The Socceroos represented us - for the fourth consecutive time - at the biggest quadrennial sporting spectacular the world has to offer. The FIFA World Cup is something the whole planet knows about, celebrates, enjoys and anticipates with enthusiasm.
The four year lead-up to the next FIFA World Cup in 2022 begins after the new world champion wraps up what invariably turns out to be a marathon of intoxicating celebration and hysteria.
There\'s good reason to keep TWT\'s 2018 World Cup Wall Chart as a souvenir of what we\'ve witnessed in June and July of 2018.
This World Cup is special not only because Australia was in it, but because it was a mesmerising spectacle, full of action and drama - and importantly it is the final event of its kind to be hosted by a worth football nation, with the potential embarrassment that may come with the next World Cup being organised by undeserving host Qatar - a small, barely populated blip on the world map, known better for corruption than its sporting prowess.
And the other reason you should keep TWT's Wall Chart? So that in a decade or more, when the Socceroos achieve greatness on the world stage, we can look back at to the 2018 World Cup, reminisce and admire how far we\'ve come.
Can Australia sing \"Football\'s coming home\" (optimistic English football anthem)? Not quite yet... but football's finding a new home and there\'s nothing - not even interference from our dominant-for-now novelty sports - that can stop its unprecedented rate of growth Downunder.
