A funny and empowering story about overcoming cultural barriers in sport and in life.
If white boys can't jump, can Asian kids play cricket? Lan's fed up with being called a nip. He wants to be a true-blue Aussie. What better way than by playing the greatest Anglo game of all?
Lan gathers a team together and defiantly gives it a name: NIPS XI. Now all they have to do is get some equipment, find a coach, get themselves a sponsor and learn the rules of the game. Then it's time to challenge the best cricket team in the district.
A funny, empowering story of cricket and curry, spinners and leggies, that is about overcoming cultural barriers, in sport and in life.
Also by Ruth Starke, NIPS GO NATIONAL is the sequel to the bestselling NIPS XI.
