About my latest book, The Night Nopat Was Left Out

Nopat is an ardent basketballer who feels that the world revolves around him and that 'he controls things'.To some, he is a real treasure while others are unhappy with the way he operates. When his friends want to have a sweat after school, he is the one they come to because he knows how to organise the games. He is the man with the ideas. His friends have no problem with that until his arrogance causes them to lose an important match. That's when the situation starts going downhill and even some of his family turn against him. What is he to do now? Can he trust anybody at all ? How can he turn this situation around?
