Publisher Comments:

#1 New York Times bestseller Mike Lupica continues his tribute to the underdog in his Comeback Kids series for young middle-grade readers

Nick Crandall feels like he doesn't belong anywhere. He never has felt like he belongs, really. He doesn't fit in this new family with his new foster parents, both of whom are professors. They don't know the first thing about sports, and he's not exactly a model student. 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, not some kid. But Nick needs to prove something. He needs to prove that he belongs–to his parents, to his team, and to himself.

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.” –School Library Journal

 

“These should score big with middle-graders looking for alternatives to Matt Christopher's titles.” –Publishers Weekly

 

“This title is a good choice for reluctant readers with a background in baseball.” –School Library Journal

 

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.
