Publisher Comments:

Nick Crandall feels like he doesn't belong anywhere. He doesn't fit in with his new foster parents. They don't know the first thing about sports - and he's not exactly the model student they want him to be. It's only a matter of time until they realize he's not the right kid for them. And Nick certainly doesn't belong playing varsity baseball. He's only twelve years old! His teammates want a catcher their own age. But Nick needs to prove that he belongs - to his parents, to his team, and to himself.

Synopsis:

Feeling he doesn't belong with his foster parents, 12-year-old Nick Crandall also feels he shouldn't be catcher for the varsity baseball team. But Nick needs to prove himself wrong--that he does, indeed, belong.
