Overview

From #1 New York Times bestseller Mike Lupica!

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.

Praise

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