The kid they’re bullying –
just might be the team’s best hope.
The Toronto Blues baseball team isn’t having a winning season. Their pitcher throws hard, but not usually over the plate. Their catcher is a goofball and their shortstop hates everyone—not least of all himself.
When they hear that a new, all-star player from the States is going to join the team, they’re thrilled; maybe they will finally win something. But what will happen when the athlete they’re pinning their hopes on turns out to be the gay kid they’ve been bullying at school?
This middle-grade sports novel features compelling characters in situations kids can relate to. With plenty of baseball action and fast-paced dialogue, even the most reluctant reader will keep turning the pages to find out what happens next.
Coming, Fall 2015: Gabby: Wonder Girl; illustrated by Jan Dolby, published by Fitzhenry & Whiteside.
