Be prepared for your hands to hurt while reading, as you’ll be clenching your fists so tightly while rooting for the hero!


Due to his mother’s financial problems, Domen ends up at the very end of the world – in a place called Selce. A new home, a new school and a new basketball court await him there. Domen is a promising athlete who lives solely for basketball. But one day, his world is turned upside down, when certain events twist his fate in a most unexpected way.

The Fifth Foul is a teen issues book in which sport plays the leading role. The protagonist Domen is a basketball fanatic and puts everything on the line for his bright future in the sport. But just as this seems completely feasible, in addition to all other minor and major problems Domen faces, mainly “thanks” to his parents, the writer, for the sake of a good story, decides to place another, perhaps impassable obstacle in the hero’s path. It’s an eventful, emotionally suspenseful novel, interwoven with fantastic mysteries from beginning to end.
