An English Boy in New York Paperback
by Tom Easton
Part of the Boys Don't Knit series
Ben Fletcher, the master of mohair, is back . . . As part of his prize as All-UK Knitting champion, seventeen-year-old Ben Fletcher has won himself an all-expenses-paid trip to New York . . . and to the US National KnitFair. Unfortunately, his new girlfriend Megan is (somewhat suspiciously) unable to come with him, which means Ben has the dubious pleasure of being accompanied by his family and his third-choice-friend Gex. The other problem is, Ben's not really sure he wants to be known as a teenage knitting genius any more.
His idea for a knitable hoodie could make him millions . . . or turn him into a laughing stock forever. An existential knitting crisis turns out to be the least of Ben's concerns though, as he quickly finds that his apparent magnetism for trouble has followed him across the pond.
Join Ben for another hilarious misadventure, involving some overly eager Knitting Expo representatives, suspicious men in dark suits, some potential trouble from the Mob, a mix-up of epic proportions with Megan . . . and still rather a lot of knitting.
