9780141318776: Unluckiest Boy in the World

Nicholas Frith has always considered himself to be about as lucky as the average boy. But while on holiday with his mum, Nicholas accidentally disturbs an ancient tomb and everything changes. Nicholas falls under an ancient curse and suddenly misfortune, calamity and disaster follow him everywhere! The curse can't touch Nicholas himself, but bad things happen to everyone else around him. Forced to move from school to school, Nicholas loses hope of ever lifting the curse or ever finding someone who will risk being his friend. But one day he meets Fiona - the one person who is prepared to take that risk. Through Fiona's friendship, Nicholas learns to believe in himself and break the curse at last, changing his luck for ever.

About the Author:

Andrew Norriss was born in Scotland and taught history in a sixth-form college in England for ten years before becoming a full-time writer. Together with Richard Fegen he is the creator and writer of several TV sitcoms, notably The Brittas Empire. He lives in Hampshire.

From AudioFile:

Poor Nicholas Frith becomes the victim of an ancient curse as he and his mother vacation in Spain. Friends abandon him, and schools expel him. Narrator Glen McCready is magnificent as he introduces the Spaniards who try to help with the spell, Nicholas's new friend, Fiona, and a school principal who obligingly redesigns his school to accommodate the curse. McCready successfully projects fear by using fast and dramatic Spanish, which is not necessary to understand. An Indian psychic helps Nicholas eventually overcome the spell. An excellent choice for young mystery buffs, this unusual story presents young listeners with dramatic examples of characters overcoming obstacles.
