A massive football star has it all but someone is plotting his downfall in this new edition of Exposure, by Carnegie Medal-winning author Mal Peet.

A breathtaking retelling of Othello set in South America, by Carnegie Medal-winning author Mal Peet. Winner of the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize.

Revered as a national hero ... married to the desirable Desmerelda ... cherished by the media ... football star, Otello, has it all. But a sensational club transfer sparks a media frenzy, and when he is wrongly implicated in a scandal, the footballer's life turns into a tragic spiral of destruction. South America's top sports journalist, Paul Faustino, witnesses the power of the media in making and breaking people's lives.
