The Comeback Kids Series


by Mike Lupica (Author)

Book Cover for the Comeback Kids Series
The Comeback Kids is a series of five separate stories about five boys for whom sport is almost everything. Jake loves to play soccer; Chris is passionate about football; Zach and Pedro live for basketball; and Nick wants to belong on the baseball field. In differing ways, all the boys discover that rarely is the desire to play free from outside factors—factors such as friendships, peer group and family pressures, and the challenges of performing well in a sport you love.
