Cup Magic: Auckland/San Diego 1995 by Susan Battye (Junior Fiction) Yes, it’s all about lucky red socks and Team New Zealand’s famous America’s Cup challenge of 1995! I can imagine this one will be popular in primary and intermediate schools, being a fictional account of significant NZ sporting event with the added interest of being told from the viewpoint of a young boy whose family is closely involved. Bob Docherty provides a good concise review on his book blog.
