Overview

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
