James Gong is training for his black belt in taekwondo. One night a camera crew from Hollywood Productions turns up at training for an episode of My Life, only to see James at his most ornery aggressiveness.

They love James’ jumping spinning sidekick, and decide to star him in a small budget flick. Trouble is, Hollywood Productions is a scam company that basically produces B-grade ‘loser’ movies to offset huge tax bills.

Meanwhile, James, who likes his sister Caitlin’s best friend, Amber, thinks his sudden film career will curry favour. Not so. If anything, Amber shuns him even more. Hollywood Productions may want to lose money, but they underestimate their star.

    I absolutely recommend this book for all young readers.
    This book, James Gong: The Big Hit tells a fun adventure story about a young boy who unexpectedly becomes a child film star when a video of his moves in Taekwondo is found by a Hollywood producer. James is immediately taken with the idea of becoming the next Bruce Lee, and expects that his new-found fame will help him attract the love of his life, the nasty but stunningly gorgeous Amber. However, James soon learns the hard way that people are often untrustworthy, and ultimately only his own childlike imagination can defeat the dastardly villains and save the day. Along the way, he learns valuable lessons about himself and those around him, and by the end of the story has undergone a massive character development for the better. This story is interwoven with Taekwondo, however it is easy to understand regardless of how much knowledge the reader has of this martial art. James is a relatable and compelling narrtor for children, and his perspective is entertaining to read.
