Exposure

By Mal Peet

A massive football star has it all but someone is plotting his downfall in this new edition of Exposure, by Carnegie Medal-winning author Mal Peet.

A breathtaking retelling of Othello set in South America, by Carnegie Medal-winning author Mal Peet. Winner of the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize. Revered as a national hero … married to the desirable Desmerelda … cherished by the media … football star, Otello, has it all. But a sensational club transfer sparks a media frenzy, and when he is wrongly implicated in a scandal, the footballer’s life turns into a tragic spiral of destruction. South America’s top sports journalist, Paul Faustino, witnesses the power of the media in making and breaking people's lives.

  • Winner of the 2009 Guardian Children's Fiction Prize, reissued with a stunning new cover.
  • Tie-in potential with Shakespeare curriculum, as well as strong crossover appeal.
  • Mal Peet won the Carnegie Medal for Tamar and his first novel, Keeper, won the Branford Boase Award and a Nestle Children's Book Prize.
