Description

#1 New York Times bestseller Mike Lupica scores from downtown with his Comeback Kids series for young middle-grade readers. It's simple. All Billy Raynor wants to do is shoot. After all, he is one of the best shooters in the league. But with his dad as his coach, and his parents newly separated, somehow everything's become complicated. His brother Ben, the piano prodigy, hardly talks anymore. His mom is always traveling on business. And his dad is always on his case about not being a team player. But when Ben's piano recital falls on the same day as the championship game, it is Billy who teaches his dad the true meaning of being a team player.

Praise for the Comeback Kids:   “Lupica portrays the action clearly and vividly, with a real sense of the excitement and unpredictable nature of the games. These are worthy additions to collections seeking to draw in middle-grade boys with an enthusiasm for athletics." #150; School Library Journal   “These should score big with middle-graders looking for alternatives to Matt Christopher's titles." #150; Publisher's Weekly   “This title is a good choice for reluctant readers with a background in baseball." #150; School Library Journal
