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.

'Peet's prose is both lyrical and unflinching' Booklist

'In a vibrant modernisation of Othello, and with a strong South American setting, Exposure brilliantly explores the inequalities within society and the dangers of success' The Guardian

'Exposure is a clever take on a passionate tragedy' The Guardian

'...the horrible consequences of jealousy are (all) sensitively explored in this headlong, gripping thriller' The Guardian

'Clever, funny, moving and superbly well written' The Times

'...Stunningly good, blending Othello with Brazilian football, celebrity culture and the lives of slum children in a mix of brilliance and compassion' The Times

'Peet's thrillers, with their blend of sport and homicide, are irrestistible to teenage boys, and this ambitious story is his best yet.' The Telegraph

'Peet's writing is slick, assured and sophisticated.... Exposure is a terrific teenage read' The Irish Times

'This compelling book encourages its teen audience to look at society and a not so beautiful side of the game.' The Ham & High
