#1 New York Times bestseller Mike Lupica pays tribute to the underdog in his Comeback Kids series for young middle-grade readersChris Conlan is the coolest kid in sixth grade–the golden-armed quarterback of the football team, and the boy all the others look up to. Scott Parry is the new kid, the boy with the huge brain, but with feet that trip over themselves daily. These two boys may seem like an odd couple, but each has a secret that draws them together as friends, and proves that the will to succeed is even more important than raw talent.Mike Lupica scores from downtown with his Comeback Kids series. 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

Profile Picture

Scott Parry has just moved to a new town with new kids, new school, new opportunities. Of course he is the biggest know- it-all in the whole sixth grade. His dream though is to become just like Doug Flutie, former player of the New England Patriots. The rest of Scott's skills are very poor and he is not confident that he will make a football team. His "new friend" Chris Conlan is possibly the best football player in the league but his school skills arn't to great. Together will Scott and Chris find a way out of both their delemas?
