The Green is a comedic look at the sport of golf, as told through the eyes of Jason Green, the somewhat overweight class clown. After being forced to get a job at Whispering Canyons Golf Course, Jason is introduced to a cast of quirky characters. Hanging out with Eugene, a classmate who is definitely not a part of the "cool" crowd, Jason begins to learn about golf. He gets better at the sport quickly and even starts to lose some weight. In gaining self-confidence, he begins to realize that maybe the "cool kids" aren't so cool after all--and that maybe he's not just the "fat kid" who's good for a laugh. Maybe he's a golfer. The Green captures the attention of young readers as we follow Jason on a hilarious journey of self-exploration... and goofy pants.

display_description "My name is Jason Green, and I guess that I'm kind of a goofball. At least I was, until one of my pranks went wrong and I ended up having to get a job at the Whispering Canyon County Club. That was when everything changed. After I became friends with Eugene, who absolutely loves golf, I started to play the game myself. To my surprise, I was actually pretty good at it! I'd never been good at anything besides making people laugh. Now I'm starting to think that maybe the cool kids aren't so cool after all. Maybe I'm not just a fat kid who's good for a laugh, maybe I'm a golfer ..."--p. [4] of cover.
