Boys, basketball, barf -- the pefect middle grade novel! Nick wants to convince the coach that he's a point guard, get rid of Dwayne-the-dork, and stop missing his mother. But that's tough to do when he can't keep the ball way from Carson Jones, the dork is his stepbrother, the honor code's a joke, and he's been splattered with something worse-smelling than ham.

J Another combined family story by Betty Hicks, this isn't as good as Out of Order but still compelling. A middle school boy, who has been happy to be alone with his father, (his mother died in a car accident years ago), has to make room in his home and heart for a new, health conscious stepmom, (ie. tofu, etc.) and her "dorky" third grade son.
