Stick his neck out to save the so-called friends who betrayed him? Would you?
Archer's reward for being the most worthy student in his graduating class is to lose his home and all his friends.
Sent from his tranquil, medieval life to aggressive, modern-day England, Archer's mission is to report back about cars, computers and even chocolate. The other foster boys try to break his spirit by threatening him with his own bow – they have no idea they are dealing with a trained warrior. He teaches them honour, integrity and archery; they teach him how to get in trouble with the authorities.
Forced to move foster homes, things go downhill as pink-haired Mandy takes a fancy to his athletic body - his warrior defences are useless against her obnoxious wiles. She seems determined to drag Archer into the shady world of Stiff and his gang of teenage shoplifters.
This swashbuckling time-travel adventure will appeal to fans of archery, heroic underdogs who win out, and plenty of (British) humour.
