These six stories from acclaimed author Chris Crutcher are about athletes, but are not simply sports stories.
Here he presents characters from some of his best loved novels, as well as creating some unforgettable new personalities, in tales of love, death, bigotry, heroism, and coming of age.
“The characterizations are powerfully drawn, and the dialogue is quick and scorching.”
-The Horn Book (starred review)
“An involving group of stories…thought-provoking and discussable.”
