    • Abstract:
      Summary: "Noah Savino has been stuck in a wheelchair for months. He hates the way people treat him like he's helpless now. He's sick of going to physical therapy, where he isn't making any progress. He's tired of not having control over his own body. And he misses playing baseball--but not as much as he misses his dad, who died in the car accident that paralyzed Noah. Noah is scared he'll never feel like his old self again. He doesn't want people to think of him as different for the rest of his life. With the help of family and friends, he'll have to throw off the mask he's been hiding behind and face the fears that have kept him on the sidelines if he ever wants to move forward."-- From publisher website.

Booklist Reviews 2018 September #1

After a car accident killed his father and left him paralyzed, Noah Savino has been struggling. Physical therapy isn't helping. He can no longer play baseball. Plus, his mom is getting friendly with the single father next door. Things brighten when Alyssa, an old friend, rekindles their friendship, and a new student, Dee-Dub, arrives. Together, the three try to take down the class bully, who thinks girls can't play baseball, all while trying to expose Noah's mom's beau as a liar when he claims to be the mascot of the local pro team. Although Noah and his friends at times seem much wiser than 12, it is nevertheless heartening to see young characters who don't hesitate at their differences or care what other people think, especially Dee-Dub, an unusually tall and stocky middle-schooler, who proudly owns his nickname, short for Double Wide. As snarky Noah gradually comes to terms with his life-changing accident in this refreshingly fast-paced novel, readers will have an easy time cheering him on as he moves toward recovery. Grades 4-7.
