Change-Up: Mystery at the World Series

Change-Up: Mystery at the World Series Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Playing in the World Series is every ballplayers dream, but no one is more surprised to actually be here than Norbert Doyle-a late call-up for an underdog team.

Doyle pitched in the minor leagues for years before making it to the bigs. He went to school in the off-season to earn his degree. He raised two kids on his own after the tragic death of his wife. And now hes slated to start game two of the World Series. His feel-good story is a media gold mine. And teen reporters Stevie Thomas and Susan Carol Anderson have scored the first in-depth interview with him.

At first theyre as charmed by Doyle as everyone else-its hard not to root for this guy. But the more Stevie and Susan Carol learn about him, the more conflicting stories they hear. And so Stevie becomes an investigative reporter by day while covering the World Series by night, trying to piece together the truth of one athletes life. But along the way he has to wonder-who will be hurt if the truth is known, and who will benefit, and what does it have to do with baseball? There are a million secrets in any locker room. Which ones need to be told?
